Welcome to Bedford Fine Art Gallery. We are located in the historic Barclay Mansion in downtown Bedford, Pennsylvania, about one mile from the world famous Bedford Springs Resort. We are a premier US gallery specializing in the sale of 19th and early 20th Century fine art. Whether you are a seasoned collector or are buying fine art for the first time, you can count on finding investment quality paintings from the best artists of the period. You don’t need an expert art critic to immediately understand and fully appreciate realistic art that pleases now and for many years to come.
Modern and contemporary art, as well as various prints and reproductions, are still being produced in mass volume. They do not possess the unique absolute limited supply of 19th century realistic fine art and may be worth pennies-on-the-dollar right after your purchase. When writing about the finest art of the 19th Century in a December 1, 2012 article, Kary Mantyk of the Epoch Times (greater New York City Area newspaper) states: "They celebrate humanity, the beauty of the raw power of nature, ideals, veneration for the divine, and the dreams of human beings in a way that can be immediately understood, felt, and appreciated by the viewer. They accomplish that with extraordinary technique and inner vision. A new renaissance is inevitable, when contemporary artists will look back on the great academic artists of the 19th Century for technical guidance and inspiration, which is lacking in modern art. Just as we scoff at those who thought the world was flat, people will one day scoff at those modern works of art now being sold for tens of millions."
