This is the first book-length biography of a ground-breaking art dealer, Zoá Dusanne (1884-1972), a highly respected African American woman whose pioneering Dusanne Gallery in Seattle, Washington significantly affected the lively mid-fifties art scene in the Pacific Northwest and elsewhere. Opening the first gallery of its kind in the city, Mrs. Dusanne championed contemporary art, including abstract expressionism, on an unprecedented scale, promoted Northwest art and artists throughout the United States and in Europe, and left her mark on world-known private collections as well as permanent collections in acclaimed art museums."Her impact on Seattle would be hard to overestimate," wrote New York critic Winthrop Sargeant of the gallery owner who, in the mid-fifties introduced avant-garde art to the Pacific Northwest.
