About the author
Lawrence Steigrad Fine Arts deals in Old Master and British paintings, drawings, and sculpture primarily dating from the sixteenth through nineteenth centuries, with a particular emphasis on portraiture. We are located on the upper east side in a nineteenth century townhouse. We are one block away from The Frick Collection. In the United States, we are the only gallery to continually feature portraiture of this period. It is a field of collecting in which wonderful works can still be obtained at a reasonable expense. Having produced shows and catalogs devoted to portraiture since 1989, we have been gratified by the results. Many important paintings have been placed in American and European private collections, as well as numerous works borrowed for exhibitions and sold to the permanent collections of national and international museums.
