The Brummer Galleries in Paris and New York: From Antiquities to the Avant-Garde

Museum curators and other scholars consider the influence of the early 20th-century art dealers Joseph and Ernest Brummer and their galleries in Paris and New York. Organized across six curatorial departments at The Met, this two-day symposium provides an opportunity to highlight and assess original research on this renowned art dealing firm. The Brummer galleries played a significant role in the formation of countless institutional and private collections in fields as varied as Ancient Near Eastern, Egyptian, Ancient Greek and Roman, Ancient American, Middle Eastern, Iranian, and Medieval Art, and ranging from African sculpture to avant-garde painting. Among the many museums that maintained a long-term relationship with Joseph and Ernest Brummer, The Met houses the largest and foremost collection of works of art with Brummer provenances in any museum in the world.
