The gallery will return to the Armory’s second-floor period rooms which were opened to the public for the first time at last year’s inaugural edition of TEFAF New York. This year’s exhibition will include a selection of museum-quality artworks, including recent acquisitions and with a focus on Italian and Spanish painting and sculpture from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
Our mission is to foster appreciation, enjoyment and study of pre-twentieth-century artworks and antiquities in the Western European tradition. By creating the Henry Clay Fricks, Archer Milton Huntingtons and Isabella Stewart Gardeners of the future, we safeguard and increase the rich legacy of the great collectors of the 19th and early 20th centuries. By using an on-line platform to disseminate new research, exhibitions and learning experiences, we bring together scholars, institutions, and collectors, and reach out to a wider audience through web-based public engagement initiatives.
