Hammer Galleries today continues its tradition of building treasured collections for individuals, corporations and museums worldwide. This tradition dates back to its founding in 1928 by industrialist and philanthropist Dr. Armand Hammer.In the early 1930s, the gallery rose quickly to prominence when it was the first in the west to exhibit the world famous Russian Imperial Easter Eggs by celebrated court jeweler Karl Faberg. After beginning with a skillful focus on Russian icons, brocades, Imperial porcelains and rare art objects, the Gallery found itself sought after for endeavors such as representing the historic and vast art collection of William Randolph Hearst, the largest of its time, and works from the famed collection of J.P. Morgan. The Gallery was also noted for staging an extraordinary exhibition of Mexican art entitled 12,000 Years of Mexican Art from Pre-Columbian to the Twentieth Century.In the 1960s, the focus of Hammer Galleries shifted to 19th and 20th Century European and American Masters and this remains its primary focus today. In 1980, the gallery nestled into its new home, a restored, turn of the century townhouse at 33 West 57th Street, opening with an exhibition of the revered American Folk Artist Grandma Moses. Numerous exhibitions of Academic, Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, and Modern European and American Masters followed. Included in these exhibitions, have been extraordinary works by European artists such as Bouguereau, Corot, Monet, Renoir, Picasso, and Chagall as well as American artists such as Chase, Wyeth, Cassatt, Hassam, and Sargent.Our tradition of excellence has continued with several extraordinary exhibitions. Of particular note was the special collection of unique ceramics by Pablo Picasso that Hammer Galleries premiered in 1996, and continues to display today. Created in Vallauris between 1948 and 1968, this group of over 40 unique ceramics was acquired directly from the estate of Jacqueline Picasso, the artists second wife. In 2004, this collection returned to Vallauris on loan by Hammer to an important exhibition at Le Muse Magnelli. Also in 2004 the gallery exhibited an exemplary collection of 20th Century masters (Chagall, Matisse, Miro and Picasso) as well as a special exhibition of paintings by the American Regionalist, Thomas Hart Benton.Hammer has availed itself of technological developments in the mid 1990s becoming one of the first galleries to make its collection available on the internet through its website, www.hammergalleries.com. Hammer also provides expertise in authentication, appraisals and restoration in addition to undertaking installations and framing. Each year we view thousands of works of art, collaborating with scholars, experts and conservators, so that we may choose a select group of high quality works to offer our clientele.For over 80 years, Hammer Galleries has presented its patrons extensive choices and exceptional opportunities for collecting works from among the worlds finest artists. Hammer Galleries continues to proudly serve the individuals, corporations and museums that have placed their trust in our abilities and experience.
