Art & Antique Dealers’ League of America T


he Art & Antique Dealers’ League of America, Inc., is the oldest and principal antiques and fine arts organisation


in North America. It is an outgrowth of the Antique Dealers’ Luncheon Club, which on January 7, 1926, met at the Madison Hotel in New York City and formed the Antique and Decorative Arts League. In 1942, “to give the organisation a wider ramification in every phase of the arts,”the name was changed to the Art & Antique Dealers’ League of America, Inc. Te purpose in forming the League was to bring the various members of the art and antiques trade closer together to promote a greater understanding among themselves and with the public, and generally to devote itself to the best interests of dealers and collectors of antiques and works of art. Te late James P. Montllor, an expert in Spanish art, was the primary mover behind the organisation at its inception and throughout its early years. Te first president was the noted collector and dealer, Charles J.Duveen.


Te League is one of the founders of C.I.N.O.A. (Confédération Internationale des Négociants en Oeuvres d’Art), which is an international organisation of art dealers’ associations. Tus, while its main purpose is to promote the interests of dealers and collectors in the United States, the League has long had an international purview, which becomes increasingly important as the art trade confronts the challenges and opportunities associated with globalisation. Te League is strict in its standards for accepting members. Each applicant must be an established dealer whose art objects are of the highest quality. Each member subscribes


to and strictly observes the League’s Code of Ethics. Tis code determines the manner in which the dealer conducts his business so as to command the respect and confidence of his clients. All invoices or memoranda of sales must contain a fair description of the articles sold, the date or origin, the maker, if known, and condition or repairs. Any member who does not adhere strictly to the Code of Ethics is expelled from the League. Members shall, in all their dealings with the public and with their fellow members, adhere to moral and ethical standards of conduct. Tis is of utmost importance in the realm of antiques and fine art, where the public deals with experts upon whose judgement it must rely.
