For over 30 years, William A. Karges Fine Art in Carmel-by-the-Sea has been internationally known as one of the premier fine art galleries specializing in historically important, museum quality Early California paintings executed between 1880 and 1940. California Impressionist, post-impressionist, tonalist, and modernist works by artists such as Armin Hansen, William Wendt, Edgar Payne, Selden Gile, Millard Sheets, Birger Sandzen and Granville Redmond can be found in the gallery's holdings. We also handle fine American paintings by artists such as Robert Vonnoh and Childe Hassam, the color woodcuts of Gustave Baumann, and original oil paintings by important Taos, New Mexico artists including Oscar Berninghaus and E. Martin Hennings.

Karges Fine Art now also offers paintings by several award-winning contemporary artists, including the plein-air landscapes of Dennis Doheny and Cindy Baron, the abstract semi-realist landscapes of Deladier Almeida, and the remarkable realist still life paintings of Alexandra Averbach.

The gallery is also known for its superior level of scholarship and the museum quality publications produced over the years.
