Neufeld Watercolors of Midcentury New York City Resurface
Gregory James Gallery’s extensive collection of original works by the late Russian-born artist Woldemar Neufeld has grown again—this time to include watercolors that bespeak the elegance and architectural intrigue of midcentury New York City.
“Woldemar Neufeld’s vibrant use of colour, intriguing compositions and stylistic creativity will continue to charm viewers for decades,” said text from the 2009 exhibit Stories Best Told at The Museum in Ontario, Canada.

The watercolors were discovered by Neufeld’s son, Laurence, who also recently brought a series of his father’s treasured linoleum block prints (linocuts) of New York City to the gallery.

All of these recently uncovered original works are available to collectors, as are Neufeld’s iconic scenes of New Milford, Washington, New Preston, Kent and other towns in the Litchfield Hills.
As the text for Stories Best Told recounted, “In 1949, Neufeld’s wife, Waterloo-born Peggy Conrad, decided to move their young family to New Milford, Connecticut. It was there that Neufeld established his final working studio, gallery and summer art school. In this tranquil setting, Neufeld excelled at his technique and produced a variety of ambitious works.”
