The United States has been celebrating patriotism every summer since 1776, so it made sense for Park West to kick off our new Summer Sale with over 50 incredible works showing off our artists’ American spirit!

This new curated collection highlights art that evokes Americana with select works from such acclaimed artists as Peter Max, Tim Yanke, Stephen Fishwick, Norman Rockwell, LeRoy Neiman, Duaiv, Alexander Chen, Leslie Lew, Alfred Gockel, Dominic Pangborn, Autumn de Forest, and Michael Godard.

You can view the entire American Spirit collection here OR contact our gallery consultants at 1-800-521-9654 ext. 4 or sales@parkwestgallery.com.

It’s amazing to see this melting pot of artists interpret the symbols and icons of the United States in their own unique ways, particularly across so many different mediums. This collection has graphic works, oil and acrylic paintings, mixed-media works, monotypes—there is truly something for everyone.

Trista Maltby, one of Park West’s top Fine Art Consultants, is quick to point out that “within this collection, there are various artistic styles and subjects for every taste—historic imagery, American symbols created in a Pop art style, portraits of iconic figures, scenes of great American cities, and artworks honoring veterans. The overall sentiment found in these artworks is festive, yet there is also a wonderful sense of nostalgia too.”

One of the centerpieces of this collection is Peter Max‘s famous Pop interpretations of the Statue of Liberty. In 1976, during America’s Bicentennial, Max started a tradition of painting Lady Liberty every year—it would quickly become one of his most iconic motifs. Max was even integral in raising funds to renovate the statue during the 1980s.

Many of the other artists featured have similarly made their mark with artwork that is now forever a part of the U.S.A.’s visual landscape. Few artists are more closely associated with Americana than the great Norman Rockwell—two Rockwell works are included in this collection—and LeRoy Neiman‘s brilliant expressionist works captured American life for most of the 20th century.

American artists like Michael Godard, Stephen Fishwick, and Tim Yanke wear their patriotism on their sleeves, creating works that bring the icons of their home country to life while also tirelessly supporting America’s armed forces. And it’s hard not to marvel at international artists like Duaiv and Alexander Chen who bring their artistic genius to re-interpreting the visual hallmarks of the United States.

"Once a Hero Always a Hero," Michael Godard

If that alone wasn’t enough to inspire our American Spirit sale, Park West also has a very special connection to our nation’s Independence Day—Park West Founder and CEO Albert Scaglione was born on the 4th of July!

So, whether you’re a proud American or you just love the imagery and iconography of these tremendous artists, this sale is the perfect opportunity to bring something meaningful into your personal art collection.

"Yanke Doodle," Tim Yanke

Mike Snodgrass, one of Park West’s Senior Art Consultants, notes that, in this new collection, art lovers “will find works that are so new the paint has hardly dried and find others that have been pulled from our archives to reflect decades past. And yet every single one still remains exceedingly relevant today and should elicit feelings of warmth, family, history, and pride.”

Don’t miss this chance to collect your own piece of the American Spirit brought to life by some of the most famous artists in the world! If you’re interested, you can contact our gallery consultants at (800) 521-9654 ext. 4 or sales@parkwestgallery.com.
