American Fine Art Paintings.
Oils, Watercolors, Sketches. Nineteenth and early Twentieth Century. Hudson River School, Pennsylvania Academy, Cape Ann artists, Ash Can, Woodstock, Florida Indian River, American Impressionists, etc. I can provide some background about artists and perhaps a rough appraisal or guidance towards obtaining a value. I am acquainted with many of the best American art dealers and auction houses. Original works only, I do not follow the print market. I do NOT field questions about prints.

Important to know
I am not expert in European art. I encourage you to send questions on European artists to other experts on this service. NO PRINTS:I encourage you to seek help on prints elsewhere. Two sites come to mind: and

Experience in the area

I have been collecting original American Fine Art for over 20 years. I have curated art shows, and I have served as a dealer, providing appraisals and guidance for the last 8 years.


Bachelor of Arts Master of Business Administration

What do you like about this subject?

I have a keen interest in the Hudson River School painters, particularly those artists who spent time at Lake George in the Adirondack Mountains. Among them: David Johnson, William Hart, John Bunyan Bristol, Richard William Hubbard, Nelson Augustus Moore and others.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Fine Art may seem intimidating...but it is not! Most art dealers are highly approachable and they regard no question as inappropriate.
