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 and American 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, George Demont Otis, Charles Bradford Hudson and Helen Rousseau estates. The curated showroom represents a diverse range of styles and influences that have shaped the cultural and artistic landscape of the United States.

The gallery’s involvement with public institutions further indicates a commitment to cultural enrichment beyond individual collections. Showcasing museum-quality pieces and the best contemporary artists, Del Monte Fine Art is a vibrant hub for artistic expression and appreciation in Carmel-By-The-Sea and beyond.

Del Monte Fine Art represents several of the nation’s top contemporary, award wining landscape painters. The inclusion of contemporary landscape painters adds a dynamic dimension to the gallery, showcasing a bridge between the historical roots of American art and its vibrant present. Jennifer Moses, Scott Hamill, Matt Smith, Joe Mancuso, Stacy Barter, Kevin Short, and Paul Kratter bring fresh perspectives and modern techniques to the collection, contributing to the gallery’s reputation as a hub for both historical/traditional and contemporary art enthusiasts.

Gallery owner Jessica Nault’s background in Fine Art and her personal enjoyment of exploring natural landscapes align with the ethos of the gallery. When not in the gallery, Jessica and her husband enjoy collecting art and historically significant studio furniture, spending time at their family cabin in Yosemite, and the simple pleasures of raising their children in Carmel Valley.
