REMBRANDT – A FINE COLLECTION OF ETCHINGS

Galerie Michael has built a worldwide reputation over its four decades in existence.
Not least for our wonderfully-varied Rembrandt offerings.

We work each time to provide our clients with the very best.
This year, once again, we have built a collection that spans Rembrandt’s range in etchings–from nudes to Biblical works, from portraits to self-portraits and then encompassing his genre works representing everyday life from his hometown Leiden to his adopted Amsterdam.
Just as his works are varied, so too is the acquisition range–from entry-level to museum-quality. There is something here for everyone, and we invite you to explore Rembrandt–A Fine Collection of Etchings for yourself.
Four centuries ago, Rembrandt set the gold-medal standard in etchings. Others are still trying to reach that level.
We assure you that you will be as fascinated as we are.

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 20 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 6:00 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 of Rodeo Drive.

Barbizon & the Journey to Impressionism

One of the most significant periods in Art History was the 19th century. The dramatic shift from academic art to the Impressionist movement was profound and it was that shift that gave rise to modern art. Picasso, Dalí, Miró, Matisse and Chagall could not have achieved their supremacy had the artists of the mid-19th century not taken their bold steps...

Tête de Femme au Chapeau/Paysage avec Baigneurs (1962), or “Head of a Woman with a Hat/Landscape with Bathers,” by master artist Pablo Picasso survives as a remarkable and fascinating "ambiguous image,” meaning an image that can be reversed or interpreted in various ways. This original linocut belongs to Picasso’s most coveted body of graphic...

Study for Soldier Take Warning, 1942

October 26th, 2020|

Study for Soldier Take Warning is one of the greatest Salvador Dalí artworks. It is original. It is rare. It is pristine. It is for sale. Beyond that though, it is the very essence of both Surrealistic and Dalínian. Salvador Dalí was a complex... necessary to explore each of those levels and each of those facets, for to do otherwise is to dishonor it.
