For the past 25 years we have collected, bought and sold the most rare and desirable Autographed treasures, Vintage Movie Posters, Historical Memorabilia, antique toys, and other RARE antiques and collectibles. Over the past several years we have fallen prey to the joy and investment potential with High Quality Fine Art, particular oil paintings from some of the most talented artists of the last three centuries.

Although we have acquired some great work from popular American Artists, it has been the stunning classic landscapes, villages and ships at sea from Demark , Norway and other European countries that has captured our admiration and often leaves us in awe. Our collection is comprised of 18th, 19th Century and early 20th Century.  Our exciting collection embraces primarily Realism, but also ventures into Abstract and Impressionism.

Most of our vintage art is signed by a "Listed Artist" and for some we list auction result examples for that artist's work. On others without a signature? Well, these were such incredibly amazing works of art, we just didn't care if there was a signature or not. One such example is the amazing "Well Feed Gentlemen-Lord". Not signed, but what an astonishing piece. We think you will agree.

Here we are offering Spectacular Vintage Figure Portraits, Still Life & Interiors

The category was led by Vu Cao Dam's La Conversation, a sublime ink and gouache on silk piece from 1944. The auctioneer closed the sale at $246,000, breaking our own world auction record for the artist at $114,000 (Sotheby's Singapore , 4 April, 2004). "

    Ernest Fiene (1894-1965)
"Portrait of Ann Perls"



Spectacular portrait of "Ann Perls". The colors, detail, subject, table objects, background painting onto which he applies his signature make this an exceptional work of art and one of Fiene best. Although he was primarily known for his city scenes his often produced some remarkable portraits. This is the best portrait, based on our extensive research on hundreds of his paintings, he has ever produced. The closest style of work very similar to this we could find is the one which sold in the early 90's for $8800, which was much smaller and we believe not in the same extraordinary category as this one. Refer to the image of it provided.

It comes in a high quality frame which  appears to have been framed in the 40’s or 50’s. The original Gallery label from Associated American Artists in New York is still attached, but is torn and has become fragile. Also has a label from an old auction sale on back. Both labels identify this as “Portrait of Ann Perls” by Ernest Fiene. He has SIGNED onto the “inside painting behind Ann Perls head, “E. Fiene” .  Refer to images.

Artist: Ernest Fiene (1894-1965) is a highly listed artist with a strong history of appreciation based on hundreds of auction sales. This sales history includes works selling for as high as $40,000.

Based on our research of hundreds of his paintings, our impression is this is one of the best works of art he produced. Hence, we think our asking price is quite reasonable considering the quality and high demand of this artist’s work.

Size:   24.5”x30” without frame,  32x37” framed


Fiene, born in Germany , became a naturalized citizen of the United States in 1927, having spent the previous fifteen years studying art at various New York institutions and building his reputation as a painter of American scenes.

A fixture on the faculty of the Art Students League, he was also a prolific artist with a body of work spanning many media, from etchings to frescoes.
A teacher and artist, Ernest Fiene created works in many media but was noted primarily for his landscapes of American scenes.  He also did portraits, etchings, lithographs, murals and book illustrations.  Unlike many of his contemporaries, he refused to isolate technique from subject matter, and incorporated his interest in human life and his optimism about humanity into his paintings.

He was born in Elberfeld , Germany , came to the United States in 1912, and was naturalized by 1927.  He studied at the National Academy of Design from 1914 to 1918, at the Beaux-Arts Institute of Design from 1916 to 1918, and was also at the Art Students League and in Paris at the Academie de la Grande Chaumiere.

From 1938 to 1964, he taught at the Art Students League and was also a member of the supervising faculty of the Famous Artists School in Westbury , Connecticut .

Andre Bauchant (1873-1958)  


Andre Bauchant (1873-1958)

A stunning "Flowers in Vase" with a touch of surrealism. One of the nicest Bauchant paintings we believe available, based on our extensive research on this artist. He has signed l/r "A  Bauchant 1946". In his typical signature but has also added the date, which he rarely did.  Come with the beautiful original period French style ornate frame.  Bears the gallery label "Perls Gallery NY".

Size: 11.5x16", 18x23" framed.

Andre Bauchant is a very important early 20th Century French artist. He worked as a gardener until 1914 and began painting five years later after serving in the army. During his service, he displayed an aptitude for drawing as was trained as a mapmaker. Returning home, he pursued an art career and held his first show at the Salon d’Automne in 1921. His preferred subjects came from history and mythology.  So, you can see a touch of Surrealism in some of his better works, including this piece.

The French artist André Bauchant (1873 -1958) was a horticulturist by profession, and his work is marked by his close affinity with nature and his passion for ancient mythologies. This catalogue raisonné offers for the first time a comprehensive overview of Bauchant's art and provides the basis for a re-evaluation of the work of an artist who was often positioned in the shadow of his far more famous colleague Henri Rousseau.

This is an exceptional work by Bauchant in detail, color and subject.  In particular you will note the touch of Surrealism in a few of his works of art.  Most of his florals are typical on a table in a vase with solid background. However, note our piece on one of the links below to get a feel for the unique implication of a surreal background. 

When buying art  for investment or enjoyment it is best to look for that artists oeuvre, in other words what he/she is primarily famous for. Such as in this example Bauchant is most famous for his Floral art.

Whether they are carved in wood, cast in bronze, sculpted from stone, or painted on canvas or plaster, putti are endearing symbols that suggest love and romance. But what exactly are putti? The word putti is used by art historians to describe the engaging and angelic creatures of which artists are so fond of including in their works. Putti (singular - putto) usually resemble adorable chubby children or babies, and they are often depicted with tiny wings that allude to their celestial origin.

In Italian Renaissance art, putti are famous for stealing adoring glances at the Virgin Mary in Raphael's Sistine Madonna. However, putti were also quite popular with artists during many other artistic periods. These childish cherubs frolic in the romantic Rococo paintings of Franзois Boucher, for example, and additionally adorn a myriad of other magnificent pieces throughout the history of art.

Since these winged creatures are found in many works of art - both fine and decorative - they naturally acquired a mythology of sorts. For putti are used to allude to the presence of love, or even used to represent love itself. They are derived from artistic depictions of Eros (who was known to the Romans as Cupid), the Greek god of love and desire. Indeed, one famous representation of Eros is the Hellenistic work of sculpture known as the Sleeping Eros. So the next time you see an angelic little creature smiling from one of your favorite works of art, you can be sure that love is in the air.
