About Us

2003

It was at a family wedding in North Carolina when two cousins - who had taken a few art history courses together at Princeton - were catching up. One cousin, who was in the market for an oil portrait of his young daughter, queried the other, "You have contacts with international artists, can they paint a $10,000 oil portrait for less than $10,000?"

The answer was yes. Art Gallery Originals, a portrait brokerage offering fine quality children's oil portraits at affordable prices, was born.
