Dikran G. KelekianDate: 1943
Movement: American Modernism
Technique: Oil on canvas
Museum: Metropolitan Museum of Art
Location: New York, NY, USA
Size: 92.1 x 71.4 cm,
Notes: Avery painted only a handful of portraits, of which this one might be considered his finest. He depicts the famous antiquities dealer Dikran Kelekian (1868ÔÇô1951) at the end of his career in his gallery at 20 East Fifty-seventh Street. As the consequence of a cataract operation, the seventy-five-year-old Kelekian wears thick glasses that hide his eyes. He sports his customary Borsolino hat and white wing collar and is seated among objects of his profession: a rust-colored Coptic textile behind him and a small ancient Near Eastern green copper bird on a pedestal before him.
