June finds us back in the gallery- after a slew of antique fairs and a busy Asia week in March, April, and May! The weather in New York is beautiful, and the City is dare we say- almost at full throttle. We have been busy aquiring new objects and rearranging everything. It would be a pleasure to welcome you at the gallery and show you through!
Do also have a look on our website with a changing selection of some of our current objects. If we can answer any questions- do let us know.
We are also able to assist with repairs and cataloguing on a limited basis.
Looking forward to seeing you!
Steven and Andrew Chait
John Pierpont Morgan was not only one of the most powerful figures in finance with his name atop one of the world’s leading banking and investment firms, but also a prodigious collector, whose legacy resides in the masterpieces from his extraordinary collection that are now highlights of important museum and private collections. The many facets of his passion for collecting, and the story behind his Asian, ancient, and Western art acquisitions will be explored by our notable panel of scholars and experts.
