Louis M. Salerno, Owner

Questroyal Fine Art, LLC

Louis M. Salerno has long been an enthusiastic collector of American paintings. He became disenchanted with the way galleries treated collectors and vowed that if he opened a gallery, his clients would not be judged by their wealth or position; every client would be treated equally, with respect and courtesy. About two decades ago, Louis established Questroyal Fine Art and later partnered with his son, Co-owner Brent L. Salerno. Today, Questroyal is among the nation’s leading American art galleries.

Questroyal Fine Art, LLC, is an established American art gallery specializing in fine American paintings from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Questroyal’s ever-changing, diverse inventory of more than four hundred artworks includes important Hudson River School, impressionist, and modernist examples.

An exhibition and sale, November 10–December 9, 2017

New York (October 10, 2017) – Questroyal Fine Art is proud to present Bound for Posterity: Henry Martin Gasser (1909–1981). An artist distinguished by one hundred awards nationwide and included in sixty museum collections, Gasser is the sleeping giant of the twentieth century. He was a prolific artist and active leader of the Newark art school, heading the Newark School of Fine and Industrial Arts and authoring seven instructional art books. The exhibition and sale will showcase the artist’s skill as both an oil painter and watercolorist and demonstrate the full range of his talent, including industrial scenes, city views, New England harbor towns, and snow-covered villages.

Gasser was an American painter in every sense. Through persistence and a spirit of originality, he turned humble scenes of urban American life in the mid-twentieth century into extraordinary works of art that were widely praised by the art world. Bound for Posterity: Henry Martin Gasser (1909–1981) presents a rare opportunity to acquire paintings by one of the most appealing artists of the twentieth century. In the words of gallery owner Louis M. Salerno, “With all that Gasser has accomplished, he is somehow not quite famous yet, and, fortuitously, the value of his paintings has not kept pace with his escalating popularity.”

A private opening reception will take place on November 9, 2017. All proceeds from opening reception ticket sales will benefit CaringKind – The Heart of Alzheimer’s Caregiving. Limited tickets are available for purchase by visiting www.caringkindnyc.org/questroyal.
The exhibition and sale will be accompanied by a 32-page catalogue, which features 32 color plates, an introduction from gallery owner Louis M. Salerno, and biographical information about the artist. To request a copy of Bound for Posterity: Henry Martin Gasser (1909–1981), call 212-744-3586 or visit www.questroyalfineart.com/publications.
