Richard Gray, 89, Leading Chicago Art Dealer

"Richard Gray Gallery opened in 1963 in Chicago, becoming one of the first spaces in the city to show work by some of the day's most prominent artists, among them Jules Olitski, Morris Louis, Hans Hofmann, Louise Nevelson, and Jim Dine, as well as works by modernists like Fernand Léger, Pablo Picasso, Josef Albers, Milton Avery, and many others. ... But Gray's gallery didn't only show contemporary art — he also had a passion for work by aboriginal and African artists, antiquities, and prints and drawings."
