The Barakat Gallery, with its 150 years of history and the vast collection of over 40,000 artworks, is one of the world’s finest private collection of antiquities. Following three locations in London, Los Angeles, Abu Dhabi; the Barakat Seoul brings the profound art of the past to the modern metropolis. Seoul, a city where the cultivation of its history and forward-looking dynamism are infused together, provides the perfect environ-ment for the Barakat Gallery and its values of integrating the ancient art with the present period. We are dedicated to sharing our immense treasures of ancient art with our clients, advocating a fresh concept of collection where one is invited to appreciate the beauty of ancient art and share a passion for history. By retranslating antique art in a fresh modern light, we generate new interpretations through recognition of the enduring presence of the past, founded in the present.
