I, John Bluebottle, am a second-generation art and antiques
dealer. Due to a variety of circumstances, I am able to
divide my time equally between the Northeast United States and
Europe. This good fortune permits me to discover and obtain
fine antique oil paintings at their source and offer them to
my clients at realistic prices, seeking out affordable works
by well-documented artists. I own all of my paintings. Nothing
is sold on commission or consignment. I have selected each
offering with regard to the individuality of my tastes and that
of my clients.
John Bluebottle Fine Art specializes in antique oil paintings
of the 18th and 19th centuries, with an emphasis on Barbizon,
Realist and French Academic artists. We also incorporate
a major focus on Old Masters and Orientalist art.
Each painting is exhaustively researched and fully guaranteed
as described as to age, authenticity and condition. All
works are offered at most competitive values. We ship world-wide.
Shipping insurance is mandatory and will be charged to
the purchaser. Any work may be returned for any reason
within five days of receipt, provided the item is returned in
as received condition. After seven days, returns
will be accepted only upon written notification by an art professional
(museum, major gallery or an academic familiar with the artist
and period) that the painting was inaccurately described or was
inaccurately attributed. We will charge only the actual
cost of return shipping and insurance. We ship solely via
FedEx Express, which has proven to be the most reliable, efficient
and economical of the shipping services. In the unlikely
event of damage during shipping, we will assist in every way
to resolve the issue.
Payment can be made via major credit card, Paypal, check or money
order. Paypal is swift, painless and preferred.
John Bluebottle Fine Art also offers finders services.
We are always pleased to assist our clients in locating,
identifying and purchasing works of art tailored to the taste
of each individual.
