Established in 2016, Nicholas Hall is an appointment-only gallery on the Upper East Side of New York. The gallery deals in museum quality works by European artists from the 13th to mid-20th century and provides bespoke advisory services for the discerning collector. Before founding his eponymous gallery, Nicholas was the International Chairman of the Old Master and Nineteenth-Century Departments at Christie’s. His first gallery, Hall & Knight Ltd., was acquired by Christie’s in 2004.
We are one of the few dealers in New York to specialize in Old Masters and 19th century European art. The works we deal in cover late Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, Rocco, Romanticism, Barbizon School, 19th century Realism, Symbolism, Surrealism and 20th century avant-garde. 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 collectors approach art collecting with vastly different mindsets. Known for his curatorial insight and imaginative approach to art dealing, Nicholas Hall regularly showcases European Old Masters with focused and innovative 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.
