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.
New York’s Only Annual Hudson River School Exhibition to Run March 10–April 2, 2011.
Questroyal Fine Art, LLC is pleased to announce its eleventh annual Hudson River School exhibition, An Untamed Nation. The show, which opened to the public on March 10, features examples by America’s most beloved landscape artists of the nineteenth-century. Highlights include a sublime landscape by the 19th-century forefather of American art, Thomas Doughty, a marine masterpiece by Luminist painter Francis Augustus Silva, a vibrant Hudson River scene by Jasper Francis Cropsey, and a poetic landscape composition by George Inness.
Questroyal owner Louis M. Salerno said of the paintings: “After months of searching, I am happy to say that I have gathered a unique and high-quality group of paintings for this year’s exhibition. I have specialized in finding and offering Hudson River School works for over two decades now and have never displayed such a distinguished collection of nineteenth-century art as what we have planned for this year’s show. We have created one of our strongest Hudson River School catalogues to accompany the exhibition with thirty-two illustrations, but plan to display well over seventy-five works.”
An Untamed Nation will be on display until April 2, 2011. Questroyal is willing to offer a complimentary exhibition catalogue to any interested parties. Please contact the gallery via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (212-744-3586) to request your copy. Admission to the exhibition is free of charge.
