Adolph Loewi (1888–1977)

Adolph (Adolpho) Loewi was a German Jewish art and antiquities dealer. He is especially known as a dealer of textiles. He opened a gallery in Venice at the Palazzo Nani-Mocenigo, 960, San Trovaso, in 1911, and a branch in New York in 1933–1934. He left Italy in 1939, turning the firm over to Alessandro Morandotti, who moved the stock to Rome and established the firm Antiquaria in the Palazzo Massimo. Loewi settled in Los Angeles, opening the business Adolph Loewi, Inc. After the Second World War, Morandotti returned the firm to Loewi, who stayed in Los Angeles. Morandotti purchased the Rome gallery from Loewi in 1950. The textile business eventually was run as Loewi-Robertson under the direction of Loewi’s daughter, Kay Robertson, and her husband.
