Gray, Paul

As Director of the one of the foremost galleries in America, Gray talks about the gallery’s successful business model including his rigorous criteria for the quality of art he shows, involvement in the secondary market, and maintaining integrity in the gallery’s relationships with artists and collectors.

“For a work to be satisfying for me to own and to live with, it has to be successful on a conceptual level and on a visual level. It has to have an intuitive access to it to start with, then it needs to succeed beneath the surface for me. Otherwise I get bored with it.”

Paul Gray is the director if Richard Gray Gallery, founded in Chicago in 1963. Now located both in Chicago and New York, Richard Gray Gallery is one of the leading dealers in modern and contemporary American and European art, with museum and private clients internationally.
