  • Announcement: Picasso Exhibition at Galerie Michael. February-April 2020
Galerie Michael is a world-renowned art gallery located on the famed Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, California that specializes in paintings, drawings and prints from the great European Masters of the 17th to 20th centuries. Encompassing more than 12,000 square feet and with an inventory in excess of 8,000 works from Rembrandt to the 20th century Modern Masters, the collection includes Picasso, Renoir, Dalí, Miró, Matisse, Chagall and luminaries from the pre-Impressionist, 19th century Barbizon School. A staff of more than 25 unparalleled experts, located on three continents, serve a worldwide client base, many of whom specifically travel to Beverly Hills for their art needs and education.
Galerie Michael presents up to six extraordinary and highly-publicized exhibitions annually that require acquisition of the world’s finest art, curation, conservation, framing and cataloging. These exhibitions are nationally and internationally sought-after cultural events with lectures by leading global fine art historians and scholars which include docent tours and educational one-on-one sessions.  As a result, they have become some of the largest museum-grade fine art exhibitions in the United States.
Galerie Michael was founded in 1979 by Michael Schwartz and has remained the only fine art gallery on Rodeo Drive four decades later. His rare global pedigree is recognized for identifying great works of art and rediscovering historically important artists of previous centuries. As a highly-sought-after fine art expert, Schwartz is retained to assist and guide prominent collectors in numerous countries who wish to acquire world-class art and create museum-quality collections, with many of these collections going onto multi-city cultural tours.
His expertise has allowed for the discovery of artistic geniuses who had achieved great recognition during their era, but due to sociological, political or cultural forces were lost in time. Schwartz assembles and uses his worldwide contacts to obtain the finest art available with his closest ties being the descendants, collaborators and colleagues of the world’s greatest Impressionists and Modern Masters.
Galerie Michael is located at 224 North Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills, California, USA.  It is open Monday through Saturday from 10:00 am through 7:00 pm (Pacific Time) and Sunday from 11:00 am through 5:00 pm. Complimentary two-hour valet parking is located beneath the Galerie at Two Rodeo, which can be accessed from Dayton Way, via the first driveway on the right, east

WAREHOUSE SALE

After 33 years, Galerie Michael is moving and consolidating our art storage warehouse to a new location (don’t worry, you can still find our gallery at 224 North Rodeo Drive!). Because of this, we have combed through our inventory, and have decided to offer a special warehouse sale with fabulous opportunities to purchase artwork from a variety of artists.

  • The Republican government commissioned Picasso to complete a work for the upcoming 1937 World’s Fair (Exposition Internationale des Arts et Techniques dans la Vie Moderne), to be held in Paris. Two months after the bombing, the massive (25 feet long x 11 feet high) painting was completed. It does not actually show the bombing at all, nor does it place blame. It instead shows the aftermath of the bombing—the resultant carnage. It is anti-war, and this has been its agreed-upon theme through the decades. Among its figures, it depicts a wounded horse, a decapitated soldier, a woman screaming as she is trapped by fire, and a woman holding her dead baby.

February 15th, 2020|

There is an old adage that says there is only one thing that separates me from financial independence—money. The same might be said for ownership of a Picasso, however, that wouldn’t be nearly as true because it is possible to own a genuine Picasso for very reasonable costs.
