We are always in the market to buy rare and exquisite sculpture and paintings. Our focuses include the Animal Sculptors, predominantly French and American, executed circa 1860 through 1940, as well as the sculptors of the Romantic era and the Art Deco period. We are also interested in fine works of art from other periods and movements throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. We also carry a diverse collection of European and American paintings circa 1850 through 1940, but our emphasis remains on 19th century landscapes, the Animal painters and the Barbizon School.
