Lost Art Salon is a San Francisco-based gallery that specializes in the rediscovery of historically significant artists and the curation of fine art collections reflecting the major styles and movements of the Modern Era. Open to the public, the gallerys showroom offers over 5,000 paintings, drawings, prints, photographs and objects from the late 19th Century through the present, with a strong emphasis on 20th Century Modernism.

Here are excerpts from letters we received from the owners of two different collections shown at Lost Art Salon:
Our experience with Lost Art Salon was a great one mainly because Rob and Gaetan have an approach to selling and marketing art that takes a lot of the anxieties out of the process. They take the time to carefully study what has now become “their collection”, as well the biographical information that you provide. Their goal is to accurately represent both art and artist in the appropriate social and historical context.
The show they created to depict and celebrate the life, times and art of my father was wonderful! We loved it. It was just very touching to have them care enough about my father and his work to do a beautiful job with all aspects of the presentation.
The world of professional artists and galleries can seem very intimidating to outsiders, but the Salon concept invites you in, so to speak, and provides a more personal, comfortable working environment. Rob and Gaetan are experts at what they do. They are very organized and professional, they are courteous and considerate, and what more can I say: they return phone calls. I highly recommend them to anyone wanting their lost art to be found.

We had the most marvelous time yesterday and I am so happy you have Helen's work and it will live on. I'll look forward to following it on your website. Thank you many times over for your enthusiasm and your mission, to save lost artists and their output and re-expose it to new eyes and give it life again. It's a noble mission, my dears, and I'm proud that Helen's work will be in the world again.
