 Liros Gallery has been internationally recognized as specialists in fine paintings and Russian icons. A multi-generational family business dedicated to quality and tradition for 74 years, Liros Gallery has shown a commitment to representing a wide variety of American and European art of the 19th and early 20th centuries.

The extensive range of gallery services offered on the premises include art and frame conservation and restoration, quality custom framing and art appraisal
for insurance and estate valuation.

The business was first established in 1926 by Serge Liros' father, Akliros, in Berlin. Because he was renowned for his expertise in old master paintings, museums and fine collectors he quickly gained many clients. After the War, the gallery moved to Athens; and in 1949 Liros Gallery was established in New York City.



By 1955, the business was relocated to Germany; in 1956 the address was Otto Strasse 3A, Munich. After the death of Lucas Akliros in 1958, his wife Valentine Liros continued the tradition until 1963 when son, Serge Liros, took over the reins of the art business and moved the gallery to first Alexandria, Virginia, and then to Blue Hill, Maine in 1986.
