Dates of existence



Uno Langmann was born in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1935. In 1955, aided by proceeds from the sale of some coins and antiques, Langmann came to Vancouver via a one-way ticket.

In 1967 Langmann opened his first gallery, the Cedar Cottage. Within three years, he purchased the Century House building at 432 Richards Street, one of Vancouver’s first Heritage buildings. In 1977 Uno Langmann Limited Fine Arts moved to its present location at 2117 Granville Street.

By the late 1970s he had established Sotheby’s Parke Bernet in Vancouver and become their first Northwest Representative. He helped organize three auctions, all of which were very successful, before withdrawing in order to focus exclusively on his own business.

His internationally recognized gallery is Canada’s foremost specialist in the finest quality European and North American paintings from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries.
