We are a different art gallery. We own the vast majority of our inventory because we believe that artworks of superior quality prove to be excellent investments over time. During the past thirty-two years we have sold artworks of major historical importance to museums and private collections across the country. We understand the relevance of rarity, composition, subject matter, dating, condition, provenance, and framing. Some of the museums that we have sold to in the past include The L.A. County Museum of Art, The Baltimore Museum of Art, Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, The National Gallery of Art, and many others. We welcome all inquiries.
Our extensive inventory regularly features landscapes in the Hudson River School and luminist styles, as well as still-life, genre, and marine subjects. Our collections also incorporate Impressionism, Post-Impressionism, the Ashcan School, and early modernism. Artists represented include Albert Bierstadt, William Bradford, J. G. Brown, James Buttersworth, Thomas Cole, Jasper Cropsey, Asher B. Durand, Childe Hassam, Martin Johnson Heade, Winslow Homer, Eastman Johnson, John F. Kensett, Fitz Henry Lane, John Marin, Willard Metcalf, Thomas Moran, Raphaelle Peale, William Trost Richards, Theodore Robinson, Severin Roesen, and Taos School artists such as Irving Couse, E. Martin Hennings and Walter Ufer, just to name a few.
