historical notes Founded in Paris by Franz Kleinberger in 1848, the firm was a promoter and importer of European paintings to the United States. By 1913, Kleinberger was exhibiting at its gallery on lower Fifth Avenue, near to Duveen Gallery.

Harry S. Sperling (d. 1971) was vice president of the firm, becoming president after the death of Kleinberger (ca. 1936) until 1973. Kleinberger’s was closely associated with Julius Böhler both before and after World War II. (see Böhler Steinmeyer).

Kleinberger also seems to have been closely associated with Duveen. Kleinberger’s own correspondence files (unrelated to Duveen) were among the papers from Duveen given to the Metropolitan Museum and now at the Getty Research Institute.
