Founded by Antoine Helwaser in 1986, Helwaser Gallery has a hard-earned reputation for honesty, sincerity, and world-class expertise in modern and contemporary art.

The origins of Helwaser Gallery lie with Antoine’s father, who survived the Holocaust in France and began his career as an art dealer in the 1960s. It is from him that Antoine inherited his knowledge of, and passion for, modern art. After studying Art History and Philosophy, Antoine took over his father's gallery in 1986. He formalized the family business and opened the first brick-and-mortar Helwaser Gallery in the upscale 8th Arrondissement of Paris. The Gallery built up a broad network of artists and collectors on both sides of the Atlantic, and hosted a range of acclaimed exhibitions including a retrospective on the oeuvre of Jean Dubuffet, as well as presentations on French cubist masters such as Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, and Jean Metzinger.

In 2008, the Helwaser family— and Helwaser Gallery— moved to New York, where the gallery had already established a client base. Twelve years later, from its new location on Madison Avenue, Helwaser Gallery continues to specialize in modern and contemporary art. The Gallery has featured a range of renowned European and American modern masters, including Alexander Calder, Helen Frankenthaler, Adolph Gottlieb and Tom Wesselmann.

In 2018, Helwaser Gallery moved into the primary market and has since been privileged to work with mid-career and established artists. In the same year, Antoine's wife of 25 years, Anne-Marie, joined the gallery full-time as Gallery Director. Anne-Marie studied contemporary art at The New School and has since spearheaded the Gallery's effort to work with up-and coming artists and leads the gallery's public exhibition program. The program has presented internationally recognized artists such as Anton Ginzburg, Boedi Widjaja, Christina Kruse, Lin Yan and Richard Fleischner.

Helwaser Gallery has presented at a number of leading art fairs including The Armory Show, Art Miami, The Salon Art + Design, Paris Art & Design and Brafa. Antoine Helwaser also works with a variety of collectors around the world to build, grow, valuate and sell their collections.
