A SELECTION OF THE FINEST ANTIQUITIES

The gallery’s art inventory is constantly in flux. Objects in our fields of expertise include stellar examples from major art periods, civilizations, and cultures.

The art of the Near East, considered the cradle of civilization, boasts human figures, ritual vessels, and elite utilitarian objects — some dating back 5,000 years. Artworks from ancient Egypt were supported by great wealth, and include luxury goods, ritual objects, and statuary of deities and human subjects. Embodying political and technological innovation, Greek and Roman art includes sculptures, vases with mythological subjects, armor, and weaponry.

The artistry of Pre-Columbian art — distinctive from the “Western” tradition — is often astonishing in its sophistication, and enormous range of subject matter and style.
