Our Story

Découvert, when used as a French verb, means discovered.  It seems an apt word to describe our gallery comprised of drawings, paintings, and objets d'art discovered in France and Italy.  

We constantly strive to improve our inventory and understanding of works in our keeping. Since the discipline of art history is always evolving, we are grateful beyond words to the independent historians, scholars in universities, curators of works on paper in museums, drawing specialists in major auction houses, art dealer colleagues, and knowledgeable collectors for their help in solving the riddles of authorship when possible.  Correspondence and conversations with such people have enriched our lives by improving our eyes and our understanding of history.  We consider this help, offered amid busy schedules and work obligations, to be a point of grace.  It follows that we welcome corrections to our cataloging efforts at any time.

Also, we're pleased to introduce living artists whose work we admire in our Bastille Day Artist series.  

Browse freely.  If a piece grabs your heart -- speaks to your personal aesthetic -- write, call, or stop by.
