Robert Mann began working in the field of fine art photography in the mid 1970’s. Serving as director of the Lunn Gallery in Washington D.C. and the LIGHT Gallery in New York, Robert established his first gallery in 1985, operating from a salon space on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. In 1999 the gallery was one of the first to relocate to the newly emerging Chelsea art district. Throughout this time the gallery continued to expand its program in promoting classical 20th century photographers and estates along with contemporary artists, both mid career and emerging. The gallery is active in brokering secondary market material and in consulting on private and corporate collection management. We have placed collections and individual classical and contemporary works in many significant museum collections such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, The National Gallery of Art and the Nelson Atkins Museum of Art to name a few. The gallery exhibits both nationally and internationally, participating in numerous art fairs, and we publish monographs and catalogues to support the artists and estates that we represent.
