Lost Art Salon

About Lost Art Salon
Lost Art Salon is a San Francisco-based gallery that specializes in the rediscovery of historically significant artists and the curation of fine art collections reflecting the major styles and movements of the Modern Era. Open to the public and the trade, the gallery’s showroom offers over 5,000 paintings, drawings, prints, photographs and objects from the late 19th Century through the present, with a strong emphasis on 20th Century Modernism. We are an established resource for modernist, vintage, antique & contemporary art, embodying the atmospheres of an atelier, a fine art museum and a contemporary gallery (presenting the works of co-owners and artists Rob Delamater and Gaétan Caron). Our collections are acquired through artists’ estates, surviving family and friends, auctions, art dealers and myriad North American and European antique markets and fairs. Upon arrival at our gallery, our arts management team takes each piece through a diligent conservation and archival process detailing acquisition history and provenance. Prior to presentation in our gallery and online, our team works from our selection of restored original period frames to classic contemporary frames to create the best stage for every piece. At Lost Art Salon we are as inspired by the hunt and the rediscovery of historically significant artists and fine art collections as we are with sharing these experiences and artworks with our clients.
