The Top 75 Art World Professionals
Kaye Spiegler is proud to be included in ARTnews' Top 75 Art World Professionals list.
ARTnews notes that they compiled this list by "consulting an array of specialists in the field, including more than a dozen art advisers—many of them members of the Association of Professional Art Advisors—as they often deal with a distinctive assortment of professionals in building and managing clients’ collections. We also spoke with representatives of nearly as many of the country’s top art galleries, focusing on those that participate in Art Basel, which has one of the world’s most competitive selection processes, as well as a handful of other well-placed art world veterans."
The listing highlights that partners Lawrence M. Kaye and Howard N. Spiegler "focus on art restitution, cultural property disputes, litigation and dispute resolution, and commercial art practice. Their list of triumphs is long, including wresting back Kazimir Malevich works from MoMA and Harvard’s Busch-Reisinger Museum for the artist’s heirs; securing $19 million in compensation for the heirs of a Jewish art dealer for Egon Schiele’s Portrait of Wally (1912); and representing the Neue Galerie, New York, in acquiring Gustav Klimt’s Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer (1903–07) for $135 million, the highest price to date for a painting by the artist."
