Art gallery founded in London in 1843 by Henry Durlacher (b. 1825). After his death, the gallery was run by his two sons, who decided to open a branch in New York after the World War I. In the firm's early years, its specialties were porcelain and majolica; later it expanded to all types of art. Among the firms' clients: Sir Richard Wallace, the Duke of Hamilton, Joseph Widener, George Salting, and J. Pierpont Morgan. Durlacher Brothers frequently worked with the world's leading museums such as The Frick, The Berlin Museum, The British Museum, The National Gallery in Scotland, Boston Museum, Victoria and Albert, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. In addition to their work as art dealers, the Durlachers also compiled catalogues of important collections which they felt to be of national interest.
