C. & J. Goodfriend, founded in 1968, is a private dealership devoted to
the research and selling of fine original prints and drawings - old
master, nineteenth and twentieth century, European and American. It is a
small company based on the traditional European model, that is to say,
with a very large and varied inventory embracing both major artists and
minor, expensive items and inexpensive ones.
The list of artists represented in our inventory is over two thousand;
the techniques include every variety of drawing, including watercolor and pastel, etching, engraving, aquatint, mezzotint, drypoint, lithography, woodcut, wood engraving, screen print and a variety of mixed media. Although we are by nature generalists in the field, we have particular strengths: Albrecht Dürer and his circle, including the Little Masters; Rembrandt and other seventeenth-century Dutch etchers; Jacques Callot and Stefano Della Bella; Italian and Dutch old master drawings; Nineteenth-century French drawings; Félix Buhot and Auguste Lepère; Whistler and his circle; Impressionist and Post-Impressionist prints.
We have sold works of art to many private collectors and to most major
and minor American museums as well as to institutions in Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia .
