Meet your Art Basel Miami Beach 2017 Gallerists

November 15, 2017

As the world’s premier art show – one that incorporates works of every imaginable variety – Art Basel features only the most accomplished galleries. And that certainly goes for Art Basel Miami Beach 2017 – which runs Dec. 7-10 and will play host to its biggest and most impressive display in its illustrious history.

So, without any further ado, let’s introduce you to some of gallerists from around North America who will be displaying their uniquely beautiful wares in December.

Acquavella Galleries

AcquavellaFounded in 1921 by family patriarch Nicholas Acquavella, this New York City-based, family-owned enterprise has a long and rich lineage. Originally, it specialized in Italian Renaissance work, but in the 1960s, when Nicholas’ son William joined the gallery, the focus grew to include more modern work from the 19th and 20th centuries – especially those from artists who were masters of Impressionism, Post-Impressionism, Surrealism and Cubism.

A third generation – William’s children, Eleanor, Nicholas and Alexander – have since joined their father, ensuring that this iconic gallery will continue well into the 21st century.
