About the Gallery: Thistle Fine Art was begun in 2000 as a private on-line gallery for displaying a collection of art acquired over a period of forty years and in 2005 a Gallery was opened on Main Street in Rockport, Massachusetts. Modest success was enjoyed but the initial success could not be sustained after the 2008 recession, leading to closure of Gallery in 2010. The items listed in this website are a selection from my personal collection and a some items purchased for Gallery inventory. The art represented is a kaleidoscope of subjects and styles, periods and schools with special emphasis on works of English and Scottish origin, from the period 1850 to 1950.
A Word from the Collector:
My collection was begun in 1970 while living in Scotland, and continued after returning to the United States. Over the years, paintings were acquired from a variety of sources while continuing my career in education.
You are invited to browse the Gallery and contact me for further information or assistance - or to share your impressions. I would like to recover my investment, but I have no expectations for profit. With few exceptions, I've bought quality works by professional artists for reasonable prices. My mission is to find buyers who are enthusiastic collectors, but I will consider all offers - including an offer for the entire collection.
