Mnuchin Gallery is located in the historic five-story townhouse at 45 East 78th Street on Manhattan’s Upper East Side and is dedicated to presenting museum-quality exhibitions of postwar and contemporary art. Owner and founder Robert Mnuchin, whose passion for the arts developed through his childhood and his longstanding career in the financial sector as the head of the trading desk at Goldman Sachs, began a successful second career as an art dealer in 1992, co-founding C&M Arts in 1992, and the bi-coastal operation, L&M Arts in 2005. In 2013, the gallery was renamed Mnuchin Gallery under the direction of Robert Mnuchin and his partner, Sukanya Rajaratnam.
Continuing a tradition begun over two decades ago, Mnuchin Gallery presents thoughtfully curated, carefully researched exhibitions, documented with scholarly publications. Its first year of programming comprised two major solo shows of Ellsworth Kelly and Donald Judd, each highlighting bodies of work that had never been the subject of a focused exhibition. Both were critical and commercial successes that resulted in important placements with various American museums. Advising institutional and prominent private clients has remained a core focus, with particular expertise in artists such as Franz Kline, Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko, Jackson Pollock and Clyfford Still, among others. The gallery has also selectively promoted reclusive primary artists such as David Hammons and El Anatsui on a collaborative basis with exciting results. Combining the historical with the contemporary has been something the gallery has done masterfully, most recently with "Casting Modernity: Bronze in the Twentieth Century," which saw works as diverse as Matisse and Koons, brought together in what has been arguably its most acclaimed exhibition to date.
The gallery is dedicated to promoting and showcasing emerging contemporary artists from the city of St. Petersburg in Russia.
Originally established in 2005 in Saint Petersburg, as an exclusive setting to present works of local artists to a Russian audience, Erarta Galleries has since expanded its vision promoting the reawakening of Russian art and culture to an international audience. Our aim is to free Russian contemporary art from conventionality and stereotypes.
In today¹s exciting renaissance of contemporary Russian art, a new generation of artists is emerging, many of whom Erarta Galleries is pleased to exhibit. Different in form, symbolism and technique, this new avant-guarde is characterised by a reinvigorated sense of freedom.
Erarta Galleries are present in Saint Petersburg, London, New York and Zurich.

__notoc__The Benjamin N. and Sarah Duke House, also called the Duke–Semans Mansion, the Benjamin N. and Sarah Duke House, or by its street address, is a landmarked mansion located at 1009 Fifth Avenue at East 82nd Street in the Upper East Side of Manhattan, New York City. It was built in 1899-1901 and was designed by the firm of Welch, Smith & Provot in the Beaux-Arts style.The house was built speculatively by developers W. W. and T. M. Hall, and not for a specific owner, but shortly after it was completed it was bought by Benjamin N. Duke, a tobacco, textile and energy industrialist and philanthropist, who was at that time chairman of the American Tobacco Company. Benjamin's brother, James, another tobacco entrepreneur, bought the house in 1907. He lived there until his own mansion at 1 East 78th Street - now landmarked as the James B. Duke House - was completed in 1912.After James Duke relocated, the mansion became the residence of Angier Buchanan Duke, James Duke's son, until 1919, when his sister, Mary Lillian Duke married A. J. Drexel Biddle, Jr., and the couple moved in. Later their daughter, Mary Semans, took over residence. Members of the Duke family owned the mansion until 2006, when it was sold for US$40 million to American real estate mogul Tamir Sapir. The Mexican telecom magnate, Carlos Slim, at the time the richest person in the world, bought the mansion four years later in 2010 for US$44 million. Slim has said in an interview with CNBC that he is planning on using the house as a place to stay when he is in New York for business meetings. In May 2015, he put the mansion up for sale at $80 million, nearly twice the amount he paid for it.
