Ariadne Galleries is dedicated to providing the highest quality Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Eurasian and Byzantine art. Their international clientele includes renowned museums and dedicated private collectors from around the world. Torkom Demirjian, the Founder of Ariadne Galleries, has been an art dealer since 1972. Well known in the industry for his market expertise and acute aesthetic judgment, Mr. Demirjian and his sons, co-presidents James and Gregory, have been leaders in the field as both dealers and educators. Ariadne Galleries operates on the Upper East Side of New York, and Mayfair, London.
For the past 40 years, Ariadne Galleries has been discrete with the goal of protecting the privacy and the best interest of their clients.
Ariadne has always been a passionate advocate for the private collecting of Antiquities with clear titles. People always preserve and protect the valuable works they own for future generations. Ariadne has always promoted public benefit by urging the involvement of private collectors with museums and all other institutions whose mandate is to educate and enlighten the public worldwide.
The art market of late has placed much emphasis on promoting marketing, branding, and trends and is not always efficient in recognizing enduring values. Ariadne continues to stay ahead of the curve by maintaining a strong tradition of global view in the market by seeking works that are undervalued or overlooked.
The market for ancient works of art represents a field that has passed the test of time. Since only a limited number of works with great provenance come to the market, there is limited speculation and values remain consistently healthy.
