Schillay Fine Art and Richard Schillay have carried on and expanded the art dealing tradition begun by Richard’s father, M. Edwin Schillay. For decades after World War II, M. Edwin Schillay was the foremost dealer of 19th Century British art. He spearheaded the introduction to America of Victorian paintings on a large scale – long before Victorian art gained today’s aesthetic appreciation. Today, Schillay Fine Art has greatly expanded its interests and offering – well into the fields of Impressionism, Post-Impressionism, Modern art, and Post-War Contemporary.
The gallery has been responsible for the placement of many works in important museum and private collections. The gallery also takes particular pride in selecting and offering schools of art that is, today, undeservedly neglected and present excellent collecting opportunities for their clients.
Proprietor Richard Schillay is an active member of the international fine art community, regularly appearing in major fine art and antique shows. He makes himself available to interested parties by appointment and has more than 30 years of professional experience as a fine arts dealer and agent. Individuals or groups considering fine art investments are welcome to consult with Mr. Schillay, a knowledgeable and discreet fine arts counselor. His international network and experience can be a powerful asset when navigating the often arcane world of fine art. He can provide access to worthy collections and be of assistance to collectors considering acquisitions.
Mr. Schillay’s extensive resources, knowledge and contacts can greatly enhance the value of artwork that his clients may be considering for sale. Schillay Fine Art accepts suitable consigned artwork for presentation to the world’s important collectors, publicly or very privately, protecting its value for both the buyer and seller.
