Mnuchin has mounted a small tribute to Ed Clark, who passed away in October at age 93. Against a cobalt blue wall, the gallery is showing lush, abstract paintings and works on paper made between 1960 and 2004,which feature Clark’s wide, voluminous brushstrokes. Within hours of the fair’s opening, three had already been sold to private collectors for figures between $150,000 and $175,000,while two others were on reserve. “This is a celebration of the show and his life,” said gallery partner Sukanya Rajaratnam, referring to Mnuchin’s 2018 survey of Clark’s work, which was the first in New York since 1980.
