About Us


Laurence (Lars) Friedman, President and Director of Friedman Fine Arts, previously practiced law as a prominent and globally recognized international trade attorney. In early 2013, he retired from his partnership position at the New York City international trade law firm (Grunfeld, Desiderio, Lebowitz, Silverman & Klestadt LLP) in order to pursue his lifelong passion for fine arts by starting a new career as a private contemporary art dealer. Lars had amassed a distinguished personal collection of artwork, which now continues to grow. He has combined his love of art, his expertise and knowledge of the art market, as well as his legal savvy and know-how, in the active operation of Friedman Fine Arts.


Friedman Fine Arts specializes in the contemporary art market, principally in paintings, limited edition fine prints, sculptures and photographs. As a lifelong New Yorker (and avid art lover), Lars has developed an extensive network of contacts and connections within the New York City art gallery and art market world. Friedman Fine Arts also offers private art consultant services. We are also interested in purchasing works of art and in consigning works to existing dealers/galleries.
