"Passionate Collectors are responsible for gathering and thus
preserving and making sense of our History and Culture. The significant
libraries and research institutions of the world are in existence because of
these great people and their findings."-- Thomas Minckler
Since 1972 Thomas Minckler Fine Art has been immersed in the assembling of
objects relevant to the history of the American West. A noted local historian,
Thomas Minckler is an expert in four areas 19th and
20th Century painting, rare books, historic documents and vintage photography. All of these disciplines are
interrelated in chronicling American Western history.
For over thirty years, Thomas Minckler Fine Art has
assisted clients in navigating through the challenges of building collections that embrace one or all of these
aspects. We see our collectors as empowered and educated caretakers with the
ability to assemble a collection illustrating a historically epic story.
As well as maintaining significant inventory in 19th and 20th Century
paintings, rare books, historic documents and vintage photography, we appraise
and purchase collections, single items of import and estates.
We welcome you to our website and hope you enjoy exploring the different
avenues that constitute the history of the American West.
