Located at the heart of New York City’s prestigious Upper East Side neighborhood, at the corner of Madison Avenue and 78 Street, Schweizer Premodern is a high-end art gallery focusing on major artworks of the premodern era from Africa, the Pacific and the Americas. Prior to founding Schweizer Premodern in 2015, Mr. Schweizer was Sotheby’s Head of African and Oceanic Art in New York from 2006–2015. During this time he had a tremendous impact on the African and Pacific Art market, selling in excess of $250 million worth of artworks in those fields. He has been instrumental in the creation of some of the finest private collections formed in the past decade, and has placed many important works in Europe’s and America’s leading art museums. He is credited with introducing new standards for scholarship in the market and re-contextualizing Premodern African and Pacific Art as universal art forms. In November 2014, he established Premodern African Art as one of the highest-value categories of sculpture: the sale of the Kunin Senufo Female Statue for $12 million set a new world record for African Art. Mr. Schweizer has made Premodern African and Pacific Art accessible to a vastly expanded audience and effectively spearheaded the transformation of a niche market into a major collecting category.

"Our fascination was intense since the art had captured our imagination and this led to the opening of our gallery in 1978. Our philosophy is to offer both collectors and beginners a wide range of Museum quality African Art including advice and guidance."
