Central Park (1957) by Adolf Dehn (1895-1968)

Welcome to the Elie Hirschfeld Art Collection

Over the past few decades, I’ve had the joy of collecting hundreds of works of art inspired by New York City. I, Elie Hirschfeld am honored to share some of my collection on this website.

During my years at NYU Law School, I enjoyed a beautiful view of Washington Square Park from my apartment window, and the Greenwich Village landmark earned a special place in my heart. In 1987 I became the proud owner of Thomas Hart Benton’s painting entitled The Artist’s Show, Washington Square Park.

Acquiring this painting sealed my fate as an avid collector of original art scenes of New York City. Today my collection includes work by Francoise Gilot, Norman Rockwell, Frank Stella, Andy Warhol, and many others. Supporting great art is my way of expressing my gratitude for living in the culture epicenter of the United States.

I hope that you will enjoy my art collection as a unique window into the history of New York, its art, and the artists who portray it. And please share your thoughts!
