About The AADLA

The Art and Antique Dealers League of America, Inc., is the oldest and principal antiques and fine arts organization in 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 organization a wider ramification in every phase of the arts”, the name was changed to the Art and Antique Dealers League of America.The 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.

In 1935 the League was one of six founding members of C.I.N.O.A.(La Confederation International des Negociants en Oeuvres d’ Art), which is an international organization of art dealer’s associations.
