Where can I find Robert Gordy paintings?
Looking for Robert Gordy paintings? When you’re looking for paintings by a specific artist, there are several directions you can take. The first is to search online using eBay.

Another option is to visit brick and mortar galleries, but it is very hard to find older art in galleries, and the prices are usually high. One of the best options is to search on a website devoted specifically to New Orleans art, with a good guarantee and established expertise.
