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 and Post-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.
The staff of The Fine Arts Gallery of New Orleans invites you to make an appointment and discuss any questions you may have concerning your past, present and future art collecting activities.
Please contact us for an independent consultation and evaluation for works of art that you may be considering for purchase. This service is offered free of charge.
