CVSD: Corbett Vs. Dempsey Gallery
Corbett vs. Dempsey is a private art gallery specializing in mid-20th century American art, with an emphasis on Chicago painting and works on paper from 1940 to 1970.

We represent a diverse group of artists and artist estates, with historical works drawn from various American modernist traditions, including figural expressionism, American scene, social realism, surrealism, magic realism, the Chicago imagist groups, and myriad middle-American approaches to abstraction. Corbett vs. Dempsey also works with contemporary artists who connect, in one way or another, with these lineages. We pledge no specific stylistic allegiences, but instead choose to support and pursue that art which moves us. We love the American modernist traditions and their kin, but are also enthusiastic about Fluxus and the expanded arts scenes of the '60s in the U.S., Europe, Japan, South America and elsewhere, and will carry art and artifacts of this movement when available. And we are always on the lookout for unusual objects, be they artistic, industrial, musical or "other." As a special area of concern, we're fascinated by those intersections between the visual arts and music - places where the arts cross paths, as they do often in modernist painting and jazz, for instance.
