Four renowned European antiques dealers are betting that American collectors are ready for fresh objects of desire. With eye-catching displays, they are looking to cultivate an interest in historical objects and centuries-old art with a new generation of American collectors who have been long-engrossed with contemporary works.

Alessandra Di Castro, who runs Rome's Antichita’ Alessandra Di Castro; Alexis and Nicolas Kugel of Galerie J. Kugel in Paris; and French dealer Marie-Amélie Carlier, who operates Galerie Brimo de Laroussilhe, will be arriving in the U.S. next month.


"In October, the four scions of families that have long dominated the insular world of European antiques and antiquities will come together to host their first American exhibition — a two-week showcase of over 300 scrupulously pedigreed pieces ranging from Ancient Rome to the 19th century — at the Academy Mansion on Manhattan’s Upper East Side," writes Maura Egan for T, The New York Times Style Magazine.
