NEW YORK—Thirty-five years since it opened its doors in SoHo, the Eleanor Ettinger Gallery is a rarity in New York City. It is one of the last bastions of realist and representational art in a market dominated by abstract and pop art. But the gallery says the tide may be turning.

“It’s really changed over the last 15 years. There’s a resurgence, and the genre is taking a more substantial role, taking its more rightful place, but it’s still a struggle,” said Frann Bradford, the gallery’s co-owner.

The gallery is now owned and run by Eleanor Ettinger’s daughter Frann Bradford and son-in-law James Umphlett, who are fascinated with realism and are well-known for their dedication to exhibiting classic works with a modern voice.
