Questroyal Fine Art kicks off an exhibition-packed fall season on Thursday, October 7 with the opening of The American Masters. In this exhibition and sale, Questroyal presents over fifty paintings by artists whose work has endured the progression of time, remaining vital even as the cultural values of each successive generation have changed. These masters aspired to a perfection not determined by formula or conferred by intellect but by an understanding of unassailable truths inherent to the ages. Theirs is an art that transcends the preferences of any time or place, assuring the lasting extension of its century-old inclusion in our museums. This is an art that will prevail, an art to believe in.
This exhibition and sale features paintings by Thomas Moran and Albert Bierstadt, whose awe-inspiring canvases of the West encouraged the creation of our national parks; Sanford Robinson Gifford, whose command of Luminism established a visual poetry that rivals the literary genius of his contemporaries; Charles Burchfield, whose modernist conceptions acquaint the viewer with the artist’s deeply personal relationship with nature; Rockwell Kent, whose visions of Alaska reawaken a lost sense of wonder; and the immutable Grandma Moses, who takes us home to contemplate a simpler place and time.
The American Masters will remain on view through December 30 at Questroyal’s expansive galleries at 903 Park Avenue. For guests unable to visit in person, a virtual exhibition is available at www.questroyalfineart.com. This show is the first of three planned through the end of the year; Captivating Shores: Tom Yost Reveals Connecticut’s Coast will open October 28, followed by New York Forever: Important Paintings of the World’s City, opening November 10. Exhibition catalogues for all shows are available by request.
