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.
