Galleries Maurice Sternberg, a Chicago art gallery established in 1945 specializes in fine 19th and 20th century American and European paintings.

About 10 years ago, we added Sternberg Contemporary which features the work of important postwar and living mid-career artists from around the world. Please review our artists and art by clicking on Artists.

A significant and increasing number of our clients purchase work from us on line. We make the process easy. Just select a piece of art from our website that is of interest. We’ll provide you with complete details. If you want to personally examine the selected art, we’ll ship it to you for your approval (see Shipping). We accept major credit cards.

Of course, we welcome your personal visit to our private gallery which is located in a modern high rise residential building overlooking Oak Street Beach at the northern end of Michigan Avenue. The ambience is elegant, comfortable and unhurried.

We are also experienced in finding art that is not in our current inventory. The contacts with collectors, estates, dealers, appraisers, auction houses and museums that we have established over the years give us the ability to identify, locate and negotiate for the specific art that our clients seek.

We are interested in purchasing or accepting on consignment appropriate quality art.

Galleries Maurice Sternberg is open by appointment. Please call 312 642 1700 or email us at or
