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.

Anna Mary Robertson “Grandma” Moses (1860–1961), Deep Snow, 1957 Oil on board, 15⅝ x 23½ inches (sight size), inscribed and signed lower left: © MOSES. Available at Questroyal Fine Art, LLC, New York, New York
