In 1846 Michel Knoedler came to America from France as a representative of the Goupil engraving firm and established his business in New York.
In 1857 Knoedler bought out Goupil's interest in the firm, which was first located on Broadway (moving three times to increasingly uptown addresses), later at various Fifth Avenue addresses, and moved in 1925 to East 57th Street.
The business dealt in both American and European art, and included among its clients representatives of America's growing wealthy class, for example Collis P. Huntington, Cornelius Vanderbilt, Henry O. Havemeyer, William Rockefeller and John Jacob Astor. Following the death of Michel Knoedler in 1878, the business was run by his sons Roland, Edmond and Charles.
