2012 in review

Posted by M.R.N. on January 1, 2013

WordPress stats helper monkeys have been busy putting together a personalized report detailing how this blog did in 2012!

About 55,000 tourists visit Liechtenstein every year. This blog was viewed about 2.400.000 times in 2012. If it were Liechtenstein, it would take about 44 years for that many people to see it. American Gallery had more visits than a small country in Europe!

Keep calm and…

Posted by M.R.N. on December 31, 2012

All the artists and paintings posted in the coming weeks have been previously uploaded and scheduled. I won’t be physically present for a while (I’m not really here now). My second child will be born in a few days. Therefore, some comments might not appear immediately (only those who have at least a previously approved comment will be “recognized” by the blog and automatically posted). I apologize for the inconvenience but I can guarantee that no comments will be lost. They will be posted as soon as possible. Thank you. I take this opportunity to wish you a happy new year. See you soon!


keep calm baby

A (hopefully short) break

Posted by M.R.N. on November 18, 2012

As per the request of the artist, the paintings by Heide Press published on November 14 were removed from this blog.

In these five years over 1.600 American artists and nearly 20.000 paintings have been posted here. All the painters who have an official site and whose work is under copyright are correctly linked on the right sidebar of the blog. But this is the first time I receive this kind of request. Which of course I do respect.

I take this opportunity to say that American Gallery is a non-profit blog, exclusively made for the passion of art and its sole purpose is to highlight and promote the great paintings produced by the American artists over the centuries.  My intention is to create a sort of permanent archive of American art, always accessible to anyone: art lovers, art students, young artists…
Behind the 20.000 paintings posted here there’s only my passion. And a lot of my time.

That being said, I would like to invite all those who appreciate the work of Heide Press to visit her official site.

As for me, I think I’ll take a little break.

2011 in review

Posted by M.R.N. on January 1, 2012

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

London Olympic Stadium holds 80,000 people. This blog was viewed about 1.900.000 times in 2011. If it were competing at London Olympic Stadium, it would take about 24 sold-out events for that many people to see it.
