American Printmakers

Armstrong Fine Art is evolving. For those who have followed us for a long time, the focus on French artists has been obvious. But changing tastes and capricious markets, encourage us to adapt. This is a good thing! Focused as we always have been on quality, the past 12 to 18 months, we have diversified our inventory. Since we are located in Chicago, Illinois, prints by American artists come to us in great numbers, and have thus been a focus of our effort to broaden the scope of our activity. Here is an overview of some of the prints created in the United States, that are or have been part of our inventory.
