The Jason Jacques Gallery, located at 29 East 73rd Street in an upper Eastside Manhattan townhouse, holds the world's finest and most comprehensive collection of 1870-1920 European Art Pottery. Specializing in the Art Pottery Renaissance centered in 1890's France, our collection includes Art Nouveau and Japoniste masterworks by stoneware artists Ernest Chaplet, Jean Carries, Edmond Lachenal and Adrien Dalpayrat, in addition to the vast holdings of iridescent lusterware artists Lucien Lévy-Dhurmer, Clément Massier, and Vilmos Zsolnay.
After our landmark 2006 exhibition "Rediscovering Portfolio Prints by Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele" the gallery embarked on a second path focusing on Secessionist and Jugendstil graphics. The unprecedented success of this show had added a new and dynamic depth to the gallery and an exciting compliment to the ceramics collection. In October of 2007 with our solo show "Architectural Elements: Hector Guimard" the gallery added yet another dimension to both the academic endeavors and the exploration in materials. Limited by the physical size of the gallery we are unable to present many examples of the unique furniture holdings and as with the Guimard show will primarily be offering these at fairs and via this website. Everyday is a yet undiscovered adventure in collecting at the Jason Jacques Gallery. It is our goal to pioneer the finest works in some of the least explored and rarefied areas of decorative arts as we have for 20 years. Enter our world to learn to love new things, experience what you already love in a deeper, more profound way, or study the collection for a more complete understanding of the Zeitgeist of turn of the century Europe. We are here to share in the romance, so call us for an appointment to visit the gallery 7 days a week at 1-212-535-7500. We hope to see you soon.
