Hirschl & Adler Galleries was founded in 1952 by Norman S. Hirschl and Abraham M. Adler. In 1967 Stuart P. Feld joined the firm as a partner, and since 1982 has served as its President and Director. Elizabeth Feld joined the firm in 1999 and serves as Managing Director and head of the Department of Furniture and Decorative Arts. In February 2018, Hirschl & Adler moved to beautiful new quarters in The Fuller Building at the corner of Madison Avenue and 57th Street, where the gallery continues to specialize in American and European paintings, watercolors, drawings, and sculpture from the 18th through the 20th centuries; and American decorative arts from 1810 to 1910. Our modern and contemporary division, Hirschl & Adler Modern, focuses on modernist and post-war American and European art, and presents the work of a select group of established and emerging artists in all media.
Each year, we assemble about a dozen special gallery exhibitions, exploring historical and contemporary themes, or presenting the work of individual artists, past and present. Scholarly catalogues and other publications accompany most of these exhibitions. Over the last 25 years, we have published a series of substantial catalogues on American furniture and decorative arts, which have become the standard textbooks on their subjects and which are sold in museums and historic homes across the country.
Hirschl & Adler Galleries was founded 66 years ago. It is recognized as one of the foremost dealers in American and European fine arts and American furniture and decorative arts from the Neo-Classical and Aesthetic periods. We count among our clientele all major American museums with collections of fine and decorative arts, private collectors, art consultants and advisors, architects, leading figures in the interior design world, and other dealers. Our reputation for carrying superlative objects in our various fields of specialty is well known, and consequently we are frequent lenders to museum exhibitions around the world. A large percentage of the works we offer for sale is owned by the gallery, which gives our clients the added confidence that we ourselves are deeply connected to and interested in what we sell. Perhaps uniquely, we also offer a lifetime guarantee of authenticity and condition to the original purchasers of all works of art that we sell.
