Anahita Gallery, Inc            art and appraisals since 1979

Dear friends, clients and consignors,

As many of you who have contacted me recently know, beginning in 2016, Anahita Gallery, Inc. will be focusing exclusively on its large collection of international vintage, early modern, and contemporary photography, on my long-held, private textile collection, and on my professional appraisal work covering Central Asian art, international photography and sound recordings.

I have valued my relationships with my consignors in particular, and wished to remind Anahita Gallery’s international clientele to contact me promptly regarding materials on the website that will soon no longer be available.

We’ll soon be bringing a new look to the websites for Anahita Gallery, Inc. and the Anahita Archive of International Photography, so please stay tuned!
