Blain|Di Donna is a secondary market gallery founded in September 2010 by Harry Blain and Emmanuel Di Donna.
Specializing in artworks by Impressionist and 20th Century European and American masters, the gallery is located on the second floor of The Carlyle Hotel at 981 Madison Avenue, New York City, the former home of Ursus Books. The gallery was designed by award-winning New York design firm the Steven Learner Studio, and comprises two galleries, a private viewing area, two secure, environmentally controlled storage areas, and offices. As well as staging two exhibitions a year, the gallery's directors offer advice to collectors on building collections, selling works discreetly, or buying and selling through auction. Works are available to view at the company's private viewing spaces in New York and London.
As of May 2013, Blain|Di Donna and BlainSouthern exclusively represent the estate of the late sculptor Lynn Chadwick.
Blain|Di Donna has staged a number of monographic exhibitions; René Magritte, Dangerous Liaisons (2011); André Masson, The Mythology of Desire: Masterworks from 1925 to 1945 (2012); Jean Arp: A Collection of Wood Reliefs and Collages (2012), Paul Delvaux (2013), which was curated in close collaboration with the Paul Delvaux Foundation, and was also displayed in London. In October 2013 it presents Dada & Surrealist Objects (2013, which exhibits works by major artists including Salvador Dalí, René Magritte, Jean Arp and Alberto Giacometti.
Harry Blain formerly owned Blains Fine Art in London, and in 2002 co-founded Haunch of Venison, with former Founding Director of Christie’s (London) Post-War & Contemporary Art Department, Graham Southern. Blain and Southern went on to set up BlainSouthern in September 2010, which is a primary gallery based in both London and Berlin, representing a number of the world’s leading contemporary artists including Bill Viola, Jannis Kounellis, Mat Collishaw and Tim Noble & Sue Webster.
Emmanuel Di Donna is a New York-based art dealer, and was formerly vice chairman of Sotheby’s Worldwide and the Director of Sotheby’s Impressionist & Modern Art Evening sales. He left the company after a 17-year tenure in August 2010.
