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.

New York (April 26, 2018) – Questroyal Fine Art is pleased to present its second exhibition of paintings by Tom Yost. A highly respected art conservator practicing in Roxbury, Connecticut, Yost’s experience restoring fine oil paintings from the eighteenth to twentieth centuries has allowed him to translate the techniques of the masters into contemplative landscapes for modern viewers.
Inspired by natural environments where human development has done little to alter the landscape, the works displayed in Tom Yost: At the Edge of Truth focus on scenes from the Hudson River Valley in New York State, and the Litchfield Hills in northwestern Connecticut. As the artist explains, “The layering of the mountains and the hills carved out over time present an ongoing challenge and inspiration for me.” These precisely constructed compositions maintain the geometries found in each landscape to achieve realism. Yet in their finished states, the paintings are far more than strict copies, they allow the viewer to experience a sense of place and are evocative of feelings and memories.
Gallery owner Louis M. Salerno finds that Yost’s most recent creations complement Questroyal’s extensive inventory of nineteenth and twentieth century American paintings. “His work is aligned with the American masters of previous centuries, yet presents a distinct and modern perspective that permeates a distracted consciousness to deliver a timeless message.”
Tom Yost: At the Edge of Truth will be on view at 903 Park Avenue from May 11 to June 2. To request the exhibition catalogue call 212-744-3586 or visit questroyalfineart.com/publications.
