Walking into Salander-O’Reilly Galleries is akin to crossing the threshold of a fancy private home. In fact, the polished, intimate space was built in 1913 specifically to house tycoon Chester Dale’s art collection—and his mistress. The building fell into disrepair in the ‘30s and then was purchased during World War II by French art dealer Paul Rosenberg, whose family still owns the building. Connected by an ornate spiral staircase, two of the five floors function as sunny exhibition spaces for the work of both Renaissance and modern masters, ranging from Gian Lorenzo Bernini—who designed the foyer’s elegant table—to Stuart Davis. Though collectors William O’Reilly and Larry Salander split in 1997, the Salander-O’Reilly Galleries continue to produce two small-scale shows of painting and sculpture per month. Some are entirely composed of loans while others rotate works in Salander’s collection of work by artists such as Elaine de Kooning, Leland Bell and Graham Nickson.
