With a year full of headlines on the dizzying state of the contemporary art market, Questroyal Fine Art continues to champion the importance and value of nineteenth- and twentieth-century American paintings. In the newest edition of their popular Important American Paintings series, aptly titled Now and available in early October, Questroyal reviews the important sales and exhibitions in American art throughout the year, demonstrating that while this market continues to gain momentum, there is still opportunity for collectors. With more than fifty color plates, this catalogue presents a sampling of their impressive inventory—which includes over four hundred works in their recently expanded 5,000-square-foot gallery space—with examples by Milton Avery, Albert Bierstadt, Alfred Thompson Bricher, Charles Burchfield, Jasper Francis Cropsey, Sanford Robinson Gifford, Winslow Homer, John Frederick Kensett, John Marin, Walter Launt Palmer, Fairfield Porter, Edward Henry Potthast, Robert Reid, and William Trost Richards. Owner Louis M. Salerno’s enthusiasm is infectious, and his insight into each work, ranging from amusing anecdotes to market analysis, makes this catalogue as entertaining as it is informative.
