Founded in 2011, Gillis Goldman Fine Art is essentially focused on the 19th century artworks – drawings, paintings and sculptures – and offers a sophisticated and sought-after selection of artworks from the great currents of the century: from Romanticism to Neo-Impressionism, from northern schools to Pont-Aven, from Nabis to symbolism. Some of the world’s greatest museums, regularly acquire important artworks from the gallery, such as The British Museum, Le Musée d’Orsay, The Art Institute de Chicago, The Getty Museum, The Metropolitan Museum, etc. Gillis Goldman Fine Art seeks, above all to orientate his taste towards singular artistic axes in order to extract the strongest works and to identify amazing and sometimes confidential artists on the market.
