C.G. BOERNER is an art dealership that has focused on prints and drawings of the finest quality since it was founded in Leipzig in 1826. With offices today in Düsseldorf and New York, we work with museums and private collectors worldwide. While our reputation is chiefly based on our specialist knowledge of such old masters as Schongauer, Dürer, and Rembrandt as well as of the prints and drawing by the German Romantics, we also deal in prints by other important European artists, among them Mantegna, Burgkmair, Piranesi, and Goya. Additionally, in recent years we have handled exceptional works by American printmakers, including Whistler, Cassatt, Hopper, and Bellows.

We hope you will enjoy this small selection from our stock that is meant to cover a wide range of European and American prints at all different price levels. As we have usually done during the IFPDA’s in-person fairs in the fall, we are presenting these prints here in collaboration with our colleague Harris Schrank.
