|Dryads Green Gallery Welcomes You
TALK TO US--we are happy to hold paintings until you can examine them during
your next visit to New York City. We accept voice calls and e-mail. For client
privacy, we are not on Facebook or any other social network.
Our Focus Is Specific
As collectors and investors, we share and respect your dedication to
the American art that we believe in. We focus only on masterpiece
American oil paintings, generally of the period from 1850 to 1950.
For our clients and ourselves, these are the great 100 years, which
begin with works by Wyant and Bolton Jones and continue on to
Crane and Murphy, and then to Lawson, Schofield, Folinsbee,
Gruppe and Wolf Kahn--among others. We leave 18th-century
neo-classical paintings to other dealers, drawing the line at
American artists from Samuel Colman and earlier. Landscape is
our sole focus, and we are pleased to work with clients and
collectors who share its deep and lasting appeal. We support the
artistic preferences of our fellow collectors, who seek for
representational works within the varying American contexts of
Realism, Tonalism and Impressionism. For us the image of nature
is paramount, no matter what pictorial technique is used to
imaginatively render its meaning.
Our Artistic Commitment Is Clear
We have a very strong commitment to the great American
paintings that we own, and we expect the individuals who purchase
our works to share our understanding. We believe that American
art is at last coming into its own in its homeland. And the opening
of the new American wing at New York's Metropolitan
Museum--following a new American wing last year for Boston's
Museum of Fine Arts--will add sales thrust and interest! This trend
will continue as collectors react to the rising investment potential.
Prices are still low today--but they are moving higher. This permits
us to make available to our clients works whose stature would be
out of reach if done by contemporary European artists. We have no
interest in Abstract Expressionism since we believe that great art
reflects the union of individual imagination and the landscape of
reality, giving rise to a universal experience that can be shared.
And as collectors begin to reject private and self-centered shapes,
egocentric smears by self-declared artists, classic American art also
gains. Since we are collector-investors who put value first, we are
proud to offer works created in a tradition whose value is not
media-driven but intrinsic.
Our Collectors Like What We Do
Our clients prefer us because we bring wealth management skills
to the art collecting experience. The critical point is our ability to
provide value for our collectors. We want them to live with and
respect the masterpiece paintings we help them obtain and
ultimately to be rewarded by their investment. We work very, very
hard to acquire not only the very best paintings, but to do so at
prices, which allow us to sell to those who want a genuine art
investment. This is by no means easy. We are constantly seeking
value opportunities, and we are frequently disappointed when prices
go beyond what we want to pay. That can happen when untutored
buyers and financial advisors with no artistic experience bid up
prices to levels far above the actual market. We know this happens
because we have obtained bargains when over-priced works come
back for resale. We also benefit when publicity-seeking museums
deaccession American masterpieces in favor of trendy media
pop-art. Once in a great while we can make it work, and we do
acquire something that passes our tests and speaks its beauty. No
wonder, then, that paintings of this kind mean so much to us. Even
then, we try to place them at a price that will enable our collectors
to feel completely satisfied with their purchases. We love our
paintings and we live with them on a daily basis and we are happy
to offer discounts to clients who are able to see the value of
experiencing and knowing truly great art. Selected offerings from
our gallery are illustrated and discussed on this site, and we think
you will find the works we exhibit as meaningful and important as
we do. Please read our Terms and Conditions before considering
our offerings and services. For more on who we are click here.
