About Del Monte Fine Art
Centrally located in the idyllic town of Carmel-By-The-Sea, Del Monte Fine Art is a nationally recognized destination for admirers of Early California Art. The gallery features a superior selection of historically significant, museum quality paintings by artists such as Edgar Payne, Selden Gile, William Wendt, Franz Bischoff, Marion Wachtel and also represents the S.C. Yuan and George Demont Otis estates.
Del Monte Fine Art represents three of the nation’s top contemporary, award wining landscape painters: Jesse Powell, Matt Smith, and Kate Starling. In April of 2014, Jesse Powell became the first living artist whose work was acquired by The Irvine Museum.
With a degree in Fine Art, gallery owner Jessica Nault has followed her passion and realized her dream of educating and assisting new and seasoned collectors while they build beautiful art collections of paintings by her favorite group of artists – The Early California Impressionists. In addition to collecting art themselves, Jessica and her husband enjoy backpacking throughout the Sierras and the Southwest to many of the destinations often depicted.
