James Barron Art
James Barron founded his art business in 1987 as a private art dealer and consultant, and established James Barron Art in 2010. He specializes in modern and contemporary American and European art. Trained as an art historian at Brown University, Barron is known for his refined vision and ability to juxtapose works in unexpected combinations. He exhibits regularly at art fairs including The Armory Show, the Dallas Art Fair, the Outsider Art Fair, and Art Miami.
James Barron divides his time between Rome, Italy, and Kent, CT. He worked at Knoedler Gallery from 1980-85 with Post-War and Contemporary American art and at Jan Krugier Gallery from 1985-87, with the Marina Picasso Collection and Modern masterworks. He has sold Modern works by Picasso, Matisse, Arp, Giacometti and Pollock, as well as Contemporary art by Warhol, Diebenkorn, LeWitt, Mangold, Pepper, Caro and Olitski. Barron is equally adept in guiding both new and experienced collectors.
The gallery has an ongoing series of interviews with artists and art historians, reflecting a longstanding tradition of special events there.
