NEW YORK, Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- New York real estate mogul, Elie Hirschfeld, officially announces the launch of www.hirschfeldart.org, a website devoted to publicizing the renowned artists and New York centric paintings featured in his private collection.

"To me and many others, New York is the cultural epicenter of the United States. The city's energy serves as a daily inspiration to the 2 million people who live and work in Manhattan. This same energy is a muse for some of history's greatest artistic minds who harness its majestic nature in their notable works," said Elie Hirschfeld, President of Hirschfeld Properties, LLC. "As a native New Yorker, my pride and passion for the city is exemplified in my art collection and I've developed into an avid collector with a private collection of hundreds of works of art. With this website, my goal to share them publicly and engage art and New York City enthusiasts alike."

The website currently features over thirty privately held pieces ranging from bronze sculptures to charcoal drawings to oil on canvas. Some of the artists showcased include Thomas Hart Benton, Andy Warhol, Raoul Dufy, Louis Lozowick and Ernest Lawson.
