Mark Murray Fine Paintings is a gallery specializing in European and American paintings from the 19th and early 20th centuries. It is located in a town house that was formerly the home of Gloria Vanderbilt on the upper east side of Manhattan, on the corner of Madison Avenue and 72nd Street, across from the historic Rhinelander Mansion, now the flagship Polo store. The gallery’s ever-changing collection includes a range of periods and subject matter, including paintings by the French and American Impressionists; Pre-Raphaelites; Hudson River School; Marine paintings by British and Scandinavian artists; Sporting art by British and American painters including racing and hunting subjects; landscapes by Corot and his followers in Barbizon; exquisite views of Italy and Spain; traditional 19th-century sculpture by Barye, Mêne and others; and a substantial selection of Orientalist paintings by artists such as Gérôme, Weeks, and Bridgman. Although most works date from 1830-1930, there are often exceptions, such as a group of 17th-century Italian drawings, 20th-century marine and sporting works, and several specially chosen contemporary paintings.
