30. Untitled, Boat Series, 1995, Gino Hollander 11.25" x 12.24" donated by Shelley and Jerry Devitt valued at $550
Gino Hollander was a prolific artist over the course of a long and fascinating lifetime…he was still creating remarkable paintings in 2015, the year in which he died at the age of 91.
As described in his obituary in the New York Times, “He lived a passionate, fiercely individualistic, artistic life. Eugene Forman Hollander, born in Newark, NJ, served in the 10th Mountain Division in WWII, twice wounded, and decorated for action in the Italian campaign.

An artist of “Abstract Expressionism”…a post-World War II movement out of New York City. 
Gino Hollander was one of the most prolific American painters, self-taught in NYC’s Greenwich Village at the age of 38, after quitting a successful career in filmmaking. Hollander's work exemplifies the emotional intensity of the German Expressionists, part of which this movement was based on.
Many of Gino’s paintings are on display in the Hollander Gallery in Santa Fe, which is managed by sculptor Siri Hollander, his daughter. His artworks have been collected by many famous individuals, including Jacqueline Kennedy, Ralph Lauren, and Luciano Pavarotti.
Gino firmly believed art should be appreciated, not merely sold or collected, and contributed countless canvases to charities. That is how we acquired our first two of four Gino Hollander paintings, after he contributed multiple canvases to Denver Academy to help raise funds for tuition assistance.
It is our pleasure to donate this painting to benefit Foothills Art Center, in the spirit of Gino’s generosity and in his memory.
Shelley and Jerry Devitt, August 2017
P.S. Gino rarely framed his own paintings unless it was one of his favorites. This is one of those special paintings. We hope you will enjoy this work of art for many years to come.
