Ariadne is a leading international dealership in ancient art, presenting the best in Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Eurasian, and Byzantine works. Their international clientele includes renowned museums and dedicated private collectors from around the world.
Founded in 1972, Ariadne has established a reputation as one of the world’s leading dealers in the field of ancient art. With a prominent gallery in New York’s upper East side for many years, in 2014 we opened our second gallery in London’s historic art district, Mayfair. We specialise in exceptional Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Eurasian, Near Eastern, and Byzantine works of art.
With nearly fifty years in the industry, we count many important private collectors and foundations among our clients, as well as some of the world’s most celebrated museums, such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Harvard University Art Museums, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford.
We are always striving to develop a new generation of collectors who share our enthusiasm for preserving the past for the enjoyment, education, and enlightenment of future generations.
Ariadne regularly participates at major international art fairs, including Frieze Masters, London, The Salon Art + Design, New York, and TEFAF New York, in addition to holding annual exhibitions at our London gallery.
