From a vast collection of artworks discovered by chance early 2023, the art estate of Robert Markell  (April 12, 1924 - January 25, 2020) was created together with his family.


Since then, space240 has been showcasing on its main wall a new selection of watercolors every month..


Robert Joseph Markell was a five-time Emmy Award winning producer, designer, network executive, and artist whose career spanned over 50 years. As a producer and art director, he was integral to the production of dozens of theatrical performances, classic films, and television shows, including the first televised production of The Nutcracker (staged by George Balanchine on Seven Lively Arts, 1957), 12 Angry Men with Henry Fonda (1957), The Defenders (1961-1965), Playhouse 90 (1956-1961), and N.Y.P.D. (1967-1969).

Robert Markell's artistic journey began with inspiration from various painters, many of them French, including Bonnard, Cézanne, Degas, Matisse, Picasso, Rodin, and Toulouse Lautrec. Acquiring hundreds of art catalogues, while simultaneously attending academy classes, he started sketching and painting daily from 1994 to 2009, experimenting as well in etching, lithographs and monotypes. The result is a compelling display of his artistic evolution and the ability of a man to devote himself tirelessly to his muse at the age of seventy.
