Spanierman Gallery Store Profile

Store History

  • Founded: 1950
  • Founded by: Ira Spanierman
  • Headquarters: New York City

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