45+ YEARS OF ART
...It runs in our family.
Ethel and Arthur Furman, the founders of Ethel A. Furman & Associates, began dealing art and art consulting independently over 45 years ago. During this time, they represented governments, corporations, museums, other galleries, and private individuals.
Ethel and Arthur Furman,
Founders and Grandparents
*Light Purple: Ethel A. Furman's favorite color
The internet's oldest and longest continuously operating art gallery
When Ethel and Arthur took their company online in 1997, Google was not yet founded. Little did the Furmans.realize how the expansion of the then- fledgling internet would change their business
Continuity; The Next Generation: Leo Braudy is the current CEO of Ethel A. Furman & Associates. He is also the grandson of Ethel and Arthur Furman, and shares the the same passion, knowledge, and expertise as the founders. Since taking over the company, Leo has vastly expanded the outreach and breadth of work of the gallery, including a largely expanded selection of museum-quality bronze sculptures and functional water pipes*, amongst other new exciting artists' works.
*Leo Braudy’s choice to begin offering functional glass water pipes and other heady glass was spurred by the recent explosion of artistic creativity, talent, and popularity in this sector, along with his personal enthusiasm in this field.
If you're still interested...
My name is Leo Braudy. I'm an art dealer, art broker, art consultant, and the current CEO of Ethel A. Furman & Associates.
I graduated from Rollins College where I majored in International Relations--because of my lifelong interest in global politics. I then embarked on a journey of self discovery which led me around the world to Argentina and the Middle East, to me becoming an FM radio DJ and eventually my time working in a brewery.
However, I always have known running my family’s business would be my career, and now back in the U.S. I am proud to take it into the next generation. I have been assisting and working in the company quite literally my entire life, and I am fortunate to have grandparents who started this great company and a family who instilled within me a passion for art.
...Quite simply, I focus on art I like. What's my favorite type of art? I love contemporary art, and my favorite type of contemporary art is glass art and sculpture.
I hope I can share some of my passion with you here, and whether you choose to purchase or simply enjoy browsing around, I hope you see something which brightens your day and makes you reflect upon our infinite potential.
