Ryan McGinley


"Eric" is one of the most iconic early portraits from Ryan McGinley.

It perfectly captures the intimacy, youthful energy and optimism that defines his images.

This photo appeared on the cover of McGinley's first publication by Index books in 2002.

(The book in itself has become highly sought-after on the secondary market often commanding $1,000 for this slim volume)

"Eric" appeared again in the Rizzoli monograph published in 2012. 

McGinley's stature continues to rise - TEAM gallery had a sold out booth of new work at the most recent Frieze.

(In 2002 Andrea Rosen had a modest back room show of McGinley's work. This exposure led to his solo exhibition at the Whitney. At the time he was the youngest artist to have a solo show at the museum. This specific piece was part of the Andrea Rosen show)

Occasionally we will recommend that an artwork be removed from its frame for shipping. Larger framed works are typically framed with plexiglass. We export over 80% of what we sell, so we are comfortable shipping anywhere.

When a work is valued above $2,500 usd there is a possibility of tax of 0.35%, but this is applied sporadically. There can similarly be an additional fee for customs brokerage and this can range from $20 - $65. US Taxes, duties and customs brokerage are not included in our flat rate shipping.
