About

Lillian Heidenberg Fine Art is a private gallery featuring many of the most important artists of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. A member of the prestigious Art Dealers Association of America, the gallery relies on a deep commitment to connoisseurship. Working with both young and established collectors, we offer a wide range of services to our clients to support them in every facet of collecting including acquisitions, sales, and installation.

A world renowned expert on modern sculpture, Lillian Heidenberg founded her gallery in 1975 on 57th Street in New York City. The gallery represented a remarkable selection of artists including Henry Moore, Lynn Chadwick, Joan Miró, Fernando Botero. Today, we continue to work with modern and contemporary masters through our private gallery with offices in New York, Miami, and Southampton.
