Michael Rosenfeld Gallery specializes in twentieth and twenty-first century American art. Established in 1989 by Michael Rosenfeld, the gallery opened its doors to promote the breadth of American art and those artists – known or unknown – that contributed to the establishment of surrealism, social realism, abstract expressionism, figurative expressionism and geometric abstraction.  In 1992, halley k harrisburg joined the gallery and together they have worked to expand the canon of American art. Regarded as art historians with multi-faceted interests, Michael Rosenfeld and halley k harrisburg have developed a diverse and challenging exhibition program.

After twenty four years on West 57 Street, Michael Rosenfeld Gallery moved to Chelsea in the fall of 2012. The gallery is now located on the ground floor of the exquisite Jean Nouvel residential tower, 100 Eleventh Avenue (at 19th Street), in a 6500 square-foot space designed by Richard Gluckman of Gluckman Mayner.

Michael Rosenfeld serves as an advisor to numerous private collectors and has helped shape the collections of many urban and regional museums across the United States. Museum clients include the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, NY, The Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, IL,  Cleveland Museum of Art, Cleveland, OH, The Crystal Bridges Museum, Bentonville, AR, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY, The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), The Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia, PA, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX, The Sheldon Museum of Art, Lincoln, NE, and The Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, DC.
