Area of Specialty

A private gallery situated in the heart of the Newport Beach Mariners Mile district, Katherine Norris Fine Art offers one of the most extensive, prestigious inventories of nineteenth and early twentieth century American and California paintings. It is our gallery’s ongoing quest to acquire and exhibit paintings that best represent the strong artistic talents of our nations’ early years. The works of these celebrated artists include American genre scenes, portraiture and the unique American landscape on canvases of stunning vistas, luminous seascapes, autumnal woodlands, forest interiors, and radiant cityscapes. These powerful views, presented to us with brush and pigment during years past still resonate in their artistic brilliance and beauty.

American Paintings Market

We believe there is real opportunity in the collection of American Art. It is an area of burgeoning potential as worldwide collectors are beginning to recognize the importance of American paintings. Considering the range of talent and depth of beauty these works feature, the demand for American paintings is not too surprising. For our inventory, we chose paintings that best represent the visions of America’s most celebrated artists.

Client Services

The owner of the gallery, Katherine Norris, started out as a passionate collector of American art. Having been a collector herself, she emphasizes the need for competent and diligent service to new and experienced, private and institutional collectors. We are very sensitive to value and work to price paintings at reasonable levels. We are careful to keep our operating costs low so as to extend savings to our clients.

We frequently accept paintings back in trade to enable clients to improve and upgrade their collection. As a result, our gallery is unique in its client-friendly attitude.

We are always interested in acquiring new pieces. Please feel free to contact us to discuss art that you would like to sell.

We thoroughly research each painting in the inventory and offer a wealth of biographical information on the artist, on the art-historical context of the work as well as on its literary, provenance and exhibition history.
