Lawrence Steigrad Fine Arts - New York - USA

.
Lawrence Steigrad Fine Arts deals in Old Master and British paintings, drawings, and sculpture primarily dating from the sixteenth through eighteenth centuries, with a particular emphasis on portraiture. We are located on the upper east side in a nineteenth century townhouse. We are one block away from The Frick Collection. In the United States, we are the only gallery to continually feature portraiture of this period. It is a field of collecting in which wonderful works can still be obtained at a reasonable expense. Having produced shows and catalogs devoted to portraiture since 1989, we have been gratified by the results. Many important paintings have been placed in American and European private collections, as well as numerous works borrowed for exhibitions and sold to the permanent collections of national and international museums.

Galerie St. Etienne - New York - USA

.
 The Galerie St. Etienne is the oldest gallery in the United States specializing in Expressionism and Self-Taught Art. Its predecessor, the Neue Galerie, was founded in Vienna in 1923 by the late Otto Kallir and was a principal exponent of German and Austrian modernism during the period between the two world wars. Having opened with the first posthumous Egon Schiele retrospective, the Neue Galerie was also the exclusive Austrian representative of such major artists as Alfred Kubin and Oskar Kokoschka. In 1930, Kallir rescued from oblivion the legacy of Richard Gerstl, today ranked with Schiele and Kokoschka as one of Austria's major Expressionists. Also in 1930, Kallir published the first catalogue raisonnĂ© of Schiele's paintings. Kallir functioned as a publisher of limited edition prints, working with such artists as Max Beckmann, Johannes Itten, Oskar Kokoschka and Alfred Kubin--all of whom he knew well. In addition, Kallir, like many early pioneers of modernism, was extremely interested in the work of untrained artists. He would greatly expand upon this interest after the 1938 Nazi invasion forced him to flee Austria.

After emigrating to the United States in 1939, Kallir established New York's Galerie St. Etienne and helped to introduce Expressionism to this country. Numerous important Austrian and German modernists, including Gustav Klimt, Oskar Kokoschka, Alfred Kubin, Paula Modersohn-Becker and Egon Schiele, were given their first American exhibitions at our gallery in the 1940s and '50s. We were instrumental in arranging the first American museum acquisitions of works by these artists (by such institutions as the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and the Museum of Modern Art).

Looking for art that reflected his enthusiasm for his newly adopted homeland, Otto Kallir became interested in American folk art. In 1940, the Galerie St. Etienne gave Anna Mary Robertson ("Grandma") Moses her first one-woman exhibition. We went on to become her exclusive representative, and Moses became one of the most famous and popular American artists of the immediate postwar era. More recently, the Galerie St. Etienne has expanded its interest in self-taught art to include Art Brut and "Outsider" material. In addition to the estate of Grandma Moses, we have worked with the estates of Henry Darger and John Kane; we also represent Ilija Bosilj, Michel Nedjar, and the Artists of Gugging.
 
Since Otto Kallir's death in 1978, the Galerie St. Etienne has been run by his long-time business partner, Hildegard Bachert, and his granddaughter, Jane Kallir.

The Galerie St. Etienne's commitment to its areas of expertise are demonstrated by the breadth and depth of our activities:
• We mounted the first American exhibitions of many of "our" artists
• We have curated or co-curated exhibitions for major museums all over the world
• We regularly mount museum-scale loan exhibitions on our premises and have borrowed from majorinstitutions and private collectors all over the world
• We have produced numerous scholarly publications, including the catalogues

Sperone Westwater - New York - USA

.
Sperone Westwater Fischer was founded in 1975, when Italian art dealer Gian Enzo Sperone, Angela Westwater, and German art dealer Konrad Fischer opened a space at 142 Greene Street in SoHo, New York. (The gallery's name was changed to Sperone Westwater in 1982.) An additional space was later established at 121 Greene Street. The founders' original program showcased a European avant-garde alongside a core group of American artists to whom its founders were committed. Notable early exhibitions include a 1977 show of minimalist works by Carl Andre, Dan Flavin, Donald Judd, and Sol Lewitt; seven of Bruce Nauman's seminal early shows; eleven Richard Long exhibitions; and the installation of one of Mario Merz's celebrated glass and neon igloos in 1979 -- part of the gallery's ongoing dedication to Arte Povera artists, including Alighiero Boetti. Other early historical exhibitions at the Greene Street space include a 1989 group show, "Early Conceptual Works," which featured the work of On Kawara, Bruce Nauman, Alighiero Boetti, and Joseph Kosuth, among others; a 1999 Fontana exhibition titled "Gold: Gothic Masters and Lucio Fontana"; and selected presentations of work by Piero Manzoni. From May 2002 to May 2010, the gallery was located at 415 West 13 Street, in a 10,000-square foot space in the Meatpacking District.

Renowned American artists Bruce Nauman and Susan Rothenberg have been with Sperone Westwater since 1975 and 1987, respectively. They are joined by established and internationally-recognized artists, including Guillermo Kuitca, Richard Long, Malcolm Morley, Evan Penny, William Wegman and Not Vital, as well as a younger generation of artists like Bertozzi & Casoni, Wim Delvoye, Kim Dingle, Charles LeDray, Tom Sachs, Jan Worst and Liu Ye.

Sperone Westwater also has in its inventory work by Carla Accardi, Alighiero Boetti, Lucio Fontana, Heinz Mack, Piero Manzoni, Mario Merz, Otto Piene, Julian Schnabel, Richard Tuttle, and ZERO Group.

In September 2010, Sperone Westwater inaugurated a new Foster + Partner designed building at 257 Bowery in New York. Today, almost 35 years after its conception, the gallery continues to exhibit an international roster of prominent artists working in a wide variety of media.

Spanierman Gallery - New York - USA

.
Some time ago, there was quite a wonderful little shop called Old World Antiques on 57th Street between Park and Lexington Avenues. It was presided over by my great uncle Fred Spanierman, who left Vienna in 1902. Nearby was the old Savoy Art and Auction Gallery. Founded in 1928 and presided over by my father, Samuel Spanierman, it was located at 5 East 59th Street and later moved to 50th Street across from Saint Patrick’s Cathedral.

And now, I, myself, preside over Spanierman Gallery, LLC, located at 45 East 58th Street, right between those old memories.

For more than a half century, Spanierman Gallery, LLC, has been dedicated to dealing in the finest American artwork of the nineteenth century to the present. In September of 1994, the gallery moved from 50 East 78th Street (its home for almost thirty years), to a luxurious new location at 45 East 58th Street, directly across the street from the Four Seasons Hotel. With 12,000 square feet of space, the gallery presents exhibitions of the highest quality, including loans from museums and private collections and works from our own holdings.

In 2006 Spanierman Modern opened next door to our existing gallery. Its shows have featured modern and contemporary artists from the mid twentieth century to the present.

Subsequently, the focus shifted to include German Expressionists, specifically concentrating on the work of George Grosz. Among the many memorable exhibitions, were extensive and comprehensive shows of Max Beckmann’s etchings and Ernst Barlach’s sculptures.

Soufer Gallery usually displays works from its extensive inventory holdings, and on occasion does hold special exhibitions.

Slag Gallery - New York - USA

.
Slag Gallery, since its opening in summer 2008, has focused on presenting contemporary works by Eastern European artists who have minimal exposure in the United States. In 2009 the gallery has begun featuring works by international artists in all media. Slag's founder is the Romanian born, Irina Protopopescu who has long been a supporter of artists. Slag Gallery shows works in all media and functions as a laboratory where artists can experiment within the walls of a gallery space. By calling the gallery Slag (Slag is a waste product in metal smelting, yet highly recyclable), Protopopescu is emphasizing that what might be worthless in one context has meaning in another and operates on that model...where one thing can evolve into another. The gallery pushes boundaries by presenting artists whose work explores geo-political, as well as social environments and issues.

Skoto Gallery - New York - USA

.
Skoto Gallery was established in 1992 as a space where some of the best works by African artists can be exhibited within the context of a diverse audience. it's inaugural exhibition was curated by African-American jazz luminary Ornette Coleman. As one of the first galleries specializing in contemporary African Art in New York City, it has been instrumental in the progression of this rapidly growing field.

Inspite of its major commitment to contemporary African Art, the gallery has also managed to expand, deepen and diversify its involvement with contemporary issues by engaging a wide range of art and artists in its programming. Towards this end, the gallery has increasingly become a nexus of possibilities not only for contemporary African art but for mainstream artists of any ethnic or cultural persuasion. It has become a site where the adventurous viewer and collector can be involved in an ongoing cultural dialogue.

The gallery sees art in ecumenical terms and often organizes exhibitions to show the submerged relationships of a post-modern global culture after modernism. Some of its exhibitions have included works by American and international artists such as Tom Otterness, Al Loving, Samia Halaby, Mary Frank, Sol LeWitt, Frank Bowling, Emilio Cruz, Helen Ramsaran, SoHyun Bae, Richard Hunt, Carol Kreeger Davidson, Bob Thompson, Paul Gardere, Vladimir Cybil Charlier, Andre Juste and Freddy Rodriguez.

Skarstedt Gallery - New York - USA

.
Skarstedt Gallery was founded in 1994 by Per Skarstedt to mount historical exhibitions of the Contemporary American and European artists that had become the core of his specialty as a private dealer and gallerist in Stockholm, Sweden and New York City in the late 1980's and early 1990's.

The philosophical approach of the gallery is based on the long-term nature of our client relationships. For the past twenty years, before the inception of the gallery, Mr. Skarstedt has been advising important collections worldwide. This has cultivated the necessary relationships with the collectors and artists in order to have significant influence on the secondary market.

Since the onset of the gallery, the artwork shown at Skarstedt Gallery has been a constant dialogue and criticism of popular culture of the late Twentieth Century. Though the work is diverse in its presentation and representation, there is a constant exploration of identity, originality, authorship, and media all of which make up the essence of postmodern thought and critical theory of our times.
