Welcome to Old Master Portraits.

Welcome to Old Master Portraits. My name is David Pakter, and I am the founder of Old Master Portraits. My colleagues and I each have formal training in fine arts and decades of experience painting in the style of the old masters. We have galleries in New York and Antwerp, and we are available for travel to all continents to carry out important commissions.

We execute oil paintings in the old master style, which includes the Renaissance, Baroque and Rococco periods. We continue in the tradition of such masters as Van Dyck, Rubens, Rembrandt, Michelangelo, Velazquez, and Raphael. Our gallery operates on the Rubens Studio model; on our most critical projects, either I or Marleen Mols, my principal partner in Belgium, will execute the portrait alone. On other commissions we delegate initial tasks to apprentices.

To learn more about the work we do, and to see a selection of our paintings, please visit our Portraits page. In addition to executing oil paintings in the old master style, we also offer unparalleled expertise in the form of art consulting services. Please visit our Art Consulting page to learn more about the full range of services we provide to institutions, art dealers, and art collectors. And please feel free to contact us on the Contact page. Thank you.
