historical notes “Richard L Feigen inaugurated his first gallery in Chicago in 1957, exhibiting 20th Century masterworks of German Expressionist and Surrealist art. He was also an early champion of such artists as Francis Bacon, Jean Dubuffet, Joseph Cornell, Claes Oldenburg, James Rosenquist, and Ray Johnson, whose estate the firm now exclusively represents.

In 1963 Feigen opened a second gallery in New York, showing pictures by such classic Impressionist and early modern master as Monet, Van Gogh, Picasso, Beckmann and Brancusi. While since that time, the firm has continued to actively deal in important pictures of the 19th and 20th centuries, they have come to specialize in Old Master painting, particularly from the Italian Mannerist, Baroque, French Neo-Classical, and British Romantic periods.”
