Both catalogues: Single sheets folded in half; bw cover illus. with black lettering. 2 internal bw illus. Catalogue of 19 pastels from the exhibit of April 17 to May 20, 1944 and catalogue of 25 paintings exhibited from October 8 to November 3, 1945. Perls Galleries billed, on the back of both catalogues, works by Austin and many others, as "For the Young Collector" - Modern French and American Paintings, Water Colors, Drawings and Prints. Perls Galleries, originally located in New York City at 32 East 58 Street, was founded in 1937 by the German brothers Frank Richard Perls and Klaus G. Perls. Perls Galleries, New York, initially sold works by the French modernists Maurice Utrillo (1883-1955) and Raoul Dufy (1877-1953). After 1939, Klaus Perls ran the New York gallery with his wife Amelia (Dolly) Blumenthal. Perls Galleries specialized in African art, French modernism, and work by contemporary American artists. Darrel Austin is one of America's most unique artists. "Born in Raymond, Washington in 1907, he resided in New Fairfield Connecticut from the early 1940s until his death in 1994. Until his death, Austin was represented by Perls Galleries in New York City starting in 1940 and Harmon-Meek Gallery since 1964. Among contemporary American artists Darrel Austin has often been thought of as a loner in the sense that his work is unlike any art movement either during his lifetime or since. Austin has created a unique world, separate but similar to ours with its own particular landscape, its own sun and moon, its own beasts, and its own race of whimsical humanoid inhabitants." (Harmon-Meek Gallery).
