Gallery Concept

We deal, as seller and advisor, in European paintings, works on paper, and sculptures dating from 13th to the mid 20th century; we are one of the few dealers in New York to specialize in Old Master paintings. When we offer a work for sale, it is handpicked for its quality, interest, and rarity within a broad range of price points. Our bespoke advisory service gives every type of collector the opportunity to discover desirable artworks with real value. 

In our experience, today’s art collectors approach European Old masters and modern art with vastly different mindsets: some have an exclusive interest in these areas, while others are also drawn to contemporary art, Asian works of art or other areas of collecting. Known for his curatorial insight and imaginative approach to art dealing, Nicholas Hall regularly showcases European Old Masters and modern art with experimental themes to encourage an understanding of the works beyond their traditional historical context. We invite both traditional and adventurous collectors to join us in exploring different ways of appreciating these fine works of art.

As the art market becomes increasingly global, we are keen to connect buyers, sellers, institutions, critics, scholars, restorers, and others in the art community across the world through a shared passion for European art -  from late Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, Rocco, Barbizon, Realism, and 20th century avant-garde. We have been a driving force for bringing connoisseurship in our field to new collectors, especially in Eastern Europe and East Asia, which we continue to strive for. The native Russian and Mandarin speakers on our team can ensure that our expertise is shared in these languages with accuracy. Through personal contacts, frequent visits, and semi-public lectures in East Asia, our personal network draws us into one of the most exciting regions in the current art market, where inventiveness and open-mindedness often characterize the approach to collecting. It is an important source of inspiration for our open-minded approach to business.
