Works from the 19th Century are acquired from private collections and auctions throughout Europe with a special emphasis on France. Brigitte Saint-Ouen, founder, director, and curator of 32 Fine Arts conducts exhaustive research on the authenticity and provenance of each painting and also obtains as much information as possible about the artists and their works. Her acquisition strategy is based on consistent fine quality, value and the excellence of condition. Each work of art sold is carefully researched, and each is accompanied with a signed Certificate of Authenticity.
The 19th Century paintings available for sale are all owned by the Gallery, as we personally believe in the importance of investment. Priced between $2,000 - $500,000, art patrons are assured of the best value in the acquisition of not only 19th Century works but also more contemporary art. 32 Fine Arts reflect the rediscovery the European oil paintings antique at fair prices.
Founded in 2000, 32 Fine Arts is a labor of love for Brigitte Saint-Ouen. A one-time protégé of Madame Simone Karoff, who for 50 years helmed the acquisitions and collections of Wally-Findlay Galleries (14 East 57th Street), Brigitte left Wally Findlay Galleries after 11 years to open 32 Fine Arts.
Brigitte's deep passion for art began as a child growing up in Paris and was fostered by her parents who took her to museums, antique markets and art fairs in the Cote-D'Azur, Provence, Brittany and Normandy. The elder Saint-Ouens shared and encouraged their interests, love of beauty and aesthetics of different regions with Brigitte. After completing three years of studies at the School of the Louvre Brigitte had a serendipitous meeting with the aforementioned Madame Karoff. Brigitte began a rigorous and intensive period of apprenticeship at Wally-Findlay where Brigitte further developed her passion and interest in art.
