The Fine Arts Gallery of New Orleans
devotes its energy, expertise and resources to searching for and offering
to the international collecting community a carefully chosen selection
of paintings, watercolors, drawings and sculptures of museum quality. To
accomplish this, the gallery combs the private and public marketplace to
report on and acquire the best artworks available. The expertise of the
academically trained gallery staff, aided by renowned experts in England,
Europe and the United States, enables the gallery to advise its clientele
on the highest professional level.
The Gallery concentrates mainly
in the area of The Old Masters through early 20th century European
and American works of art with an emphasis on the 19th
century English and Continental
Academicians and late 19th and 20th century Impressionists
The Fine Arts Gallery of New Orleans,
in addition to selling individual paintings to the collecting public, is
very active in the assembling and organizing of collections for several
major private and corporate patrons, most notably the Windsor Court Hotel
in New Orleans and the Ritz Carlton Hotels. For the beginning art enthusiast,
the gallery keeps a very fine selection of English,
European and American watercolors and drawings, an area which is
still largely undervalued.
For those collectors who enjoy the
works of the living artists, the gallery offers a choice of exceptional
works by leading sporting, marine and surrealist
artists such as Raymond Douillet.
Fine arts appraisals can be prepared
for estate, insurance or tax purposes by members of the staff who are affiliated
with the International Society of Appraisers. Other services available
are art identification and authentication. In addition, we serve as brokers
and agents for the buying or selling of entire collections or individual
works of art on behalf of their respective owners.
