Welcome to Macklowe Gallery

About Us

Macklowe Gallery is the world's premier dealer of museum-quality 20th century decorative arts, and the largest global home of authenticated Tiffany Lamps. For nearly 50 years, we have been sought by scholars, museum curators and collectors for our specialty in French Art Nouveau furniture and objects, Tiffany Lamps and Tiffany glass, and fine jewelry. Our gallery ensures the authenticity of all of our pieces, which are thoughtfully selected for their artistic value, rarity and historic importance. With more than 6,000 square feet of gallery floor space directly on Park Avenue, we are able to display one of the most important and comprehensive collections in the world.

Over the years we have placed decorative works of art in major public, private and corporate clients’ collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, The Dallas Museum and the Australian National Gallery, among others. In 1995, founders Lloyd and Barbara Macklowe were honored as Collectors of the Year by the Virginia Museum.

Now under the leadership of Benjamin and Hillary Macklowe, Macklowe Gallery has re-dedicated itself to educating and promoting the next generation of innovative collectors. Ben Macklowe has been recognized in the industry as a thought leader and lectures regularly at Christie's, Sotheby's and Appraisal Industry events. Together with the gallery's team of curatorial experts, Ben and Hillary have authored books on Art Nouveau sculpture and jewelry that have become standards in the field.
