About Us
American Art presents unique works of art that define America. We offer American Art lovers around the world a selection of genuine and unique objects of art about which you can say: This is America!

The heart of our collection is Classic American Illustration Art: the most American of American art, and ridiculously undervalued, Classic American Illustration Art offers art collectors a chance to own a share of American cultural heritage that speaks to us in a way mainstream art rarely does, and at a fraction of the cost of an original piece of mainstream art.

Every piece in our collection tells a story that can be placed within the great American narrative. Some of their voices are bound to resonate in you as they did in us, but because each is the unique three-dimensional creation of an artist's hand and mind, their aura is only revealed in person.

American Art owner Jacques Protat, PhD, has developed over the years a wide area of expertise in American Art, through teaching and personal research. His academic research as well as a deep personal interest in art have led to a coherent vision of what defines American Art. Beyond mere quality and originality, he has chosen to collect and deal in art that is so uniquely American that it partakes of our very understanding of what America is about. "It all started as a personal collection, until I found there was nothing else I would rather do to make a living than share with the world my passion for the genius of American Art."

We just love satisfied customers!
