Galerie Cahn was founded in 1999 and continues a proud family tradition that reaches back for over 150 years. The gallery is directed by Classical Archaeologist Jean-David Cahn, who is the fourth generation of his family to deal in Classical antiquities, alongside an expert international team of archaeologists. The gallery specializes in Ancient Greek and Roman art, and its extensive repertoire of artwork includes sculpture, vases, glass, gems, jewelry and coins.
Galerie Cahn participates in annual international art fairs, including TEFAF Maastricht and New York, Munich Highlights, and Frieze Masters London. Our clientele includes private collectors worldwide, as well as renowned international museums. A selection of artworks are on rotating display at the gallery in Basel, Malzgasse 23. The gallery organizes a variety of thematic exhibitions throughout the year, such as Animals and Hybrids in Antiquity, participates in Antike in Basel, and works in conjunction with contemporary artists presented at Art Basel.
We pride ourselves on our professionalism and expertise, produce a quarterly publication with contributions from numerous scholars, field archaeologists, and policy makers, and support and participate in international seminars on archaeology and antiquity.
We look forward to welcoming you to the gallery and meeting you at fairs.
