Steven Zynszajn is the Founder and Director of Elegant Century Art in New York. A French - American citizen raised in Paris in a family of art connoisseurs, he grew up in the neighborhood of Montparnasse, retracing the illustrious footsteps of Modigliani, Picasso, Chagall, and Giacometti. Initially trained as a violinist, he learned to associate the works of the impressionist artists to their musical and literary counterparts. Music lessons were regularly taught in the Bernheim (of Galerie Bernheim-Jeune) family home, further accentuating the notion of art and music as a common sensibility.

After studies at the Juilliard School and the Sorbonne, Steven turned to the business of art, establishing Elegant Century Art in 2012 with Gregory Singer in Paris. In New York, he perfected his expertise in Art Law and Finance with the Christie’s art program.

Elegant Century Art is an advisory specialized in Impressionist and Modern art which has recently expanded to the post-war era, including Abstract Expressionism, in effect encompassing the century period from 1870 to 1970.

Focused on museum-quality works, ECA led by Steven Zynszajn is sought-after by Forbes 400 and Artnet Top 100 collectors, business leaders in Asia, as well as prominent European institutions. Steven has served as a consultant to major auction houses in the United States and Asia, and his keen eye led to the discovery of an important work by Konstantin Korovin, the father of Russian Impressionism.
