Empty Frame for the Sargeant
Image in original disrepair

This American Civil War portrait will most likely be displayed in the very prestigious Union League of Philadelphia. It was built in 1865 in honour of Abraham Lincoln and the republic. Lincoln was schedule to do the opening ribbon cutting ceremonies but was killed three weeks before the event.
The Union League has one of the largest collections in the world of Civil War related items. Open to the public one day a week for viewing.

We were charged with restoring these and bringing them back to their former glory!

Welcome to the new Victoria Fine Art website!

After many months of work, we've upgraded our site to be the best website for buyers of traditional and contemporary Fine Art in the UK - possibly the whole world!

We've made it easier for visitors to zoom in on pictures to explore details, textures and brushwork like never before. We've also enhanced our search engine so it's now possible for art lovers to search for pictures by artist, title and categories of subject matter, size, period and price bracket.

Promoting the work of contemporary artists is one of our missions,  so we've created a new feature - the Artist Showcase . Why not bookmark this page so you can see the work and track the career progress of new artists as we update it monthly?

And we didn't stop there. Our powerful new content management system makes it possible to curate artworks by artist, theme, period, country of origin, style - even size! See our Online Exhibition feature. We can't wait to display our fabulous collection of literally thousands of beautiful, covetable paintings - many of them never before seen on the internet.

You are welcome to browse our site. Once you've found something you like, you can easily generate an online enquiry direct from the page.

We hope you enjoy our site and we look forward to hearing from you !
