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 was conceived in 1935. Newman Galleries still stands at 1625 Walnut Street, having leased out our first floor to a leading retailer "Free People", we are still moving forward and working out of our gallery space on the second floor, with an enterence around the corner on Moravian street. We are the oldest art gallery in Philadelphia, in our fifth generation of dealing in fine art, so please visit us on the second floor and @ newmangalleries.com
Since our inception, Newman Galleries has always maintained a separate restoration/conservation and custom-framing studio to accommodate all of the art needs of our clientele. Now located at 2306 South Street, our commitment to these services has not varied in over one hundred and thirty years.
Newman Galleries specializes in Early Twentieth Century American paintings, specifically the Pennsylvania Impressionists from the Bucks County School of American Impressionism. Further, we deal in the art of American Illustrators, Early twentieth century American prints, Contemporary regional artists and American bronzes. We also maintain a beautiful Nineteenth Century Gallery representing works from both American and European artists alike.
We provide many services, including business and fine art dealings with interior designers and architects in order to accomplish company goals in acquiring works of art. 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.
