Galerie Nathan

Swiss, est. 1922

Dr. Fritz Nathan; Fritz and Peter Nathan


The Galerie Nathan, located in Zurich, has its origins with the Nathan family of Munich where in about 1913, Otto Nathan began an art handling business. His brother Fritz Nathan [1895-1972] joined the firm in 1922 and remained in Munich following Otto's death in 1930. In 1936, due to the political circumstances in Germany, Fritz moved the firm to Switzerland, first in St. Gallen and then, from 1951, in Zurich. Fritz' son Peter joined the firm in 1953 and continued the business after the death of his father.
