For a decade, Galerie d’Orsay has served as Boston’s première resource for the finest of Master Works. Located in the heart of Boston’s Back Bay, the gallery and its qualified staff, provide acquisition and collection expertise to a wide-ranging global base of discerning art collectors.
Founder and Art Historian, Sallie Hirshberg, brings more than twenty years of experienced art counsel to her position as Managing Partner and CEO of Galerie d’Orsay. Beginning her corporate art career with one of Fidelity Investment’s top subsidiary companies, Ms. Hirshberg flourished in her 10 year capacity as advisor, implementing major art acquisitions for public and private collections throughout the world. In 2000, Ms. Hirshberg combined her in-depth art knowledge with her understanding of the business of fine art, to establish one of the world’s foremost galleries dealing with Master Works today.
Ms. Hirshberg, along with the gallery’s curator and full time rare prints expert, has built Galerie d’Orsay’s collection to include rare and museum-quality artworks that span six centuries of art. Featuring works by Rembrandt, Renoir, L’Hermitte, Toulouse-Lautrec, Pissarro, Manet, Picasso, Matisse, Dali, Cassatt, Chagall and Miro, the gallery exhibits preeminent old master, impressionist and modern artists, while maintaining an internationally renowned stable of living artists.

Providing clients with specialized knowledge of masterworks and connoisseurship, the gallery also maintains an active research staff, skilled in locating and acquiring particular artworks for those with individual interests. Priding itself on strong relationships with major collections and institutions throughout the world, while also collaborating directly with artist estates, Galerie d’Orsay consistently provides prominent exhibitions for their clientele. Noteworthy exhibits have included ‘Picasso: Master Innovator’, ‘Henri Matisse: The Jazz Suite’, ‘Marc Chagall Retrospective’, ‘Evocative Visions of Surrealism’ and ‘Impressionists and their Inspirations’.
In addition, Galerie d'Orsay has built a strong reputation as an avid supporter of the arts, with numerous museum and charity partnerships over the years. Utilizing the gallery’s vast resources, they have raised significant funds and invested great efforts in order to support such iconic art institutions as the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and the Isabella Stuart Gardner Museum, amongst others. The gallery renewed its charitable partnership with the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum by hosting a silent auction of the etching, “Self Portrait, Drawing at a Window” by Rembrandt Van Rijn, to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the artist’s birth. To coincide with this initiative, Galerie d’Orsay hosted a feature exhibition of one of finest collections of Rembrandt etchings ever to be shown in the United States.
More recently, under the High Patronage of His Serene Highness, Prince Albert II of Monaco, Galerie d’Orsay hosted an exclusive exhibition by Monegasque master artist, Claude Gauthier, to celebrate the centennial anniversary of the revolutionary Ballets Russes. The prestigious honor included the debut of original works by Gauthier, personally chosen by the Principality of Monaco as the official artist to commemorate this significant cultural event.
