History

Founded by Adolph and George Newman in 1865, Newman Galleries opened its first location at 806 Market Street. A separate carriage house kept our team of horses which pulled an elaborate display and delivery cart throughout the streets of Philadelphia. We then moved to 1704 Chestnut Street (1893-1918) and continued our tradition at 1732 Chestnut Street (1918-1935). Designed and built by us, our fourth location, 1625 Walnut Street, was conceived in 1935, where we have operated for 81 years until 2016. Newman Galleries is now moving to the Northwestern suburbs of Philadelphia, and will be open by appointment only. Our website will still be in operation, and if you're interested in seeing a painting, email the gallery and we will set up an appointment for a viewing.

We are the oldest art gallery in Philadelphia, in our fifth generation of dealing in fine art.

Newman Galleries deals in Nineteenth and Early Twentieth Century American art, specializing in the work of the Pennsylvania Impressionists and Philadelphia artists.

We also provide our clientele with the opportunity to try works of art on approval, allowing them to view a work of art in their home or office and to give it careful consideration in a proper setting. The tradition of the Newman family in the fine arts proudly continues into the fifth generation.Please feel free to contact us with any questions you might have while visiting our website.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Newman Galleries
