About:
Coe Kerr Gallery was opened by Frederick Woolworth, on the upper east side of New York City in 1969. Part men’s social club, part art gallery, it had a jovial and relaxed atmosphere. The addition of Warren Adelson, as painting Director in 1974, ushered in an era of expanded expertise, and pushed the Gallery to become one of the premier art dealers in New York.  After Adelson left to start his own gallery, Woolworth ended up closing Coe Kerr in 1995.During its operation, the Gallery handled great works of art, most notably Mary Cassatt, John Singer Sargent, and associating itself with the Wyeth family and Andy Warhol.

Closed in 1993.
