Specializing in 17th and 18th century Continental furniture, San Francisco Bay Area Contemporary Art, and Mediterranean antiquities, Foster-Gwin offers a collection that has been carefully edited with an eye to outstanding design, originality, proportion, and color. The gallery is housed in its own historic mid-19th century stables located in Jackson Square, San Francisco’s oldest neighborhood and premier art and antiques destination.
California, with its climate and architecture, provides an ideal backdrop for Mediterranean furniture, early sculpture, and exciting Contemporary Art from the San Francisco Bay Area. Foster-Gwin has put together one of the largest and finest collections of Italian period furniture in the United States and mixed it with great examples of San Francisco Bay Area Abstract Expressionist art from the 1950’s and Roman and Greek antiquities. Honored to work with many of the world’s finest architects and interior designers, Foster-Gwin also takes great pleasure in helping to build the collections of passionate private collectors.
A long-standing member in C.I.N.O.A., the Art and Antiques Dealers League of America, and the Antiques Dealers Association of California, Foster-Gwin exhibits at the San Francisco Fall Antiques Show and the Winter Antiques Show in New York.
