The Gallery

Meet the Team

Dylan Leah Brekka

is the Gallery Manager at Nicholas Hall, where she oversees the research and logistics of the gallery’s day-to-day business. Prior to joining the team, she spent four years working with a distinguished private collector in New York City as the collection manager, which entailed frequent partnerships with museums across the United States. Originally from Rhode Island, Dylan holds an M.A. from Bard Graduate Center and very much enjoyed living in Montreal during her time at McGill University, where she studied for her B.A. in Art History and History.

Yuan Fang

is the business partner of Nicholas Hall. Besides directing the gallery’s digital initiatives, she is responsible for the content planning, writing and design of our public-facing projects. Yuan’s career began in the Old Masters and 19th Century Art department at Christie’s New York before relocating to Hong Kong in 2014 as their first Asia-based specialist. A native of Hangzhou, she grew up between China and the UK, and moved to the U.S. to study chemistry and art history at Duke University, followed by an M.A. in Art History and Archeology from Columbia University. Her training was in the art of the Low Countries and 20th-century art theory but her interest extends well beyond. Yuan is a passionate cook and very much enjoys travelling and meeting people from different cultures, which has brought her to work with Save the Children in Amman, Jordan in her not-so-distant youth.

Nicholas Hall

is a respected art dealer specializing in European Old Masters and Nineteenth Century paintings. Before founding his eponymous gallery in 2016, Nicholas was an International Chairman at Christie’s for twelve years, following their acquisition of his first gallery, Hall & Knight. During his tenure, Nicholas pioneered thematic sales and notably played a central role in the private sale of the Madonna and Child by Duccio to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Nicholas’ first job in the art world was at Colnaghi on Old Bond Street, London.

Born in Oxford, U.K., Nicholas has lived in New York since 1983. He read History at the University of Oxford. Having spent much of his formative years travelling to Venice, Nicholas speaks Italian and returns to the lagoons every Spring to teach art history on the John Hall Venice course.
