Kraushaar Galleries is an art gallery in New York City founded in 1885 by Charles W. Kraushaar, who had previously been with the European art gallery, William Schaus, Sr.

When John Kraushaar, John's younger brother, joined the business the gallery also began showing modern French painters: Soutine, Matisse, Roualt, Modigliani, Redon, Picasso and other late 19th- and early 20th-century artists.

Later John Kraushaar began showing works by American artists, particularly Robert Henri and his circle, and the group known as The Eight, Henri, John Sloan, William Glackens, Everett Shinn, George Luks, Maurice Prendergast, Ernest Lawson and Arthur B. Davies. In 1901, at their gallery at 260 Fifth Avenue, they exhibited the work of the Swiss-born American society painter Adolfo Müller-Ury.

After his brother's death in 1917, John Kraushaar continued the business. In the 1940s newer American painters were added. Among them were John A. Hartell, John Heliker, William Kienbusch, Joe Lasker, James Lechay, Elsie Manville, and Karl Schrag. The gallery is now located at 74 East 79th Street and functions as a private gallery, retaining its focus art of the first half of the twentieth century.
