CENTURY GUILD: THE FINEST ART OF THREE CENTURIES.
After over a decade as purveyors of fine antiques, Century Guild can boast a world-class clientele of museum level collectors, celebrities, and- above all else- art lovers. At Century Guild we believe that understanding the historical context of an artwork is integral to its appreciation, and enjoy educating our clients to make living with fine art as rewarding intellectually as it is aesthetically. From sinister espionage during the Middle Ages through the volatile politics of the Industrial Revolution, from the blossoming of Art Nouveau through the climate of excess at the end of the First World War, the finest objets d’art of the era tell tales of frenetic passion and macabre debaucheries if we know how to listen.
Our antique inventory specializes in Art Nouveau and Symbolist works from Germany, Austria, France and Italy 1880-1920, and includes the lithography of significant artists such as Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Walter Schnackenberg, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and Ludwig Hohlwein. We offer museum quality examples of Art Nouveau, Amphora and Massier pottery, important Symbolist Art lithographs by artists including Alphonse Mucha and Carlos Schwabe, and artifacts from the golden eras of Silent Film and Munich and Berlin Cabaret.
Examples of works previously in the Century Guild collection are on permanent display in The Art Institute of Chicago, The Detroit Institute of Art, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
While Century Guild deals primarily in relics of the past, we have also exhibited a select few contemporary artists who with their exceptional work have built a rare conduit from the 19th century to the present, including Clive Barker, Jeremy Bastian, Steve Diet Goedde, Doc Hammer, Michael Hussar, Stephanie Inagaki, Steve Kilbey, Yoann Lossel, David Mack, Chris Mars, Malleus, Dave McKean, and Gail Potocki.
Century Guild also publishes art books of the highest quality, including the definitive monographs on Clive Barker, David Mack, and Gail Potocki.
Our first location was founded in Chicago in 1999. After thirteen years in Chicago, in December 2012 founder Thomas Negovan brought the gallery to Los Angeles, specifically at 6150 Washington Boulevard in the heart of the Culver City Arts District. Hours are by exhibition, chance, or appointment. You can contact the gallery at 1-800-610-CENTURY.
