Biography

32 Fine Arts

Brigitte

Founded by Brigitte Saint-Ouen in September of 2000, 32 Fine Arts specializes in American and European paintings with emphasis on 19th and 20th Century masters, photography, and contemporary figurative outsider artists.

Ms. Saint-Ouen's experience in the art world is extensive. In 1989, she started her career as an art consultant in Paris, France under the tutelage of Wally Findlay. In 1993, she moved to Wally Findlay Gallery-New York as the Director of Marketing.

After a decade at Wally Findlay Gallery, Ms. Saint-Ouen created 32 Fine Arts to provide a more customized service for private collectors, corporations and decorators.

32 Fine Arts is located in the historic Gramercy Park neighborhood, the home of New York City's only remaining private park and of the prestigious National Art Club. Gramercy Park was developed by Samuel Ruggles who bought the land in 1831. In 1966, the park and surrounding blocks (66 building lots) were designated an historic district. This neighborhood has deep roots in the arts and is the ideal location for Gallery 32 Fine Arts.

Ms. Saint-Ouen and her staff are dedicated to serving its clientele with the highest integrity and to continuing her life-long passion for the arts. Saint-Ouen believes the art market has become truly global, providing new opportunities for art dealers to serve their clients through the creation of a strong network of international relationships.
