THESE PAINTINGS ARE THE  ONLY ORIGINALS FROM WHICH OFTEN POPULAR AND RECOGNIZED, WIDELY DISTRIBUTED, REPRODUCTIONS WERE MADE.

In a private room  at the Donald Art Company, 90 S. Ridge St., Rye Brook, NY, Donald Bonnist, President & CEO of the company stored his collection of hand-picked paintings. He was born in Holland where he started in the “picture business” with his father before moving to America to develop his own company. Bonnist traveled all over the world to find talent.  His company  was considered the largest fine art reproduction company in the world. He was  proud of his art collection, showing it only once in it’s entirety in the Gallery at Donald Art Plaza.

When he retired in the 1980’s he passed his collection to his children, Claudia Bonnist, Randolph Bonnist and Vivien Bonnist Cord who are happy to be able to offer over 400 works of art created from the late 1930’s through the 1970’s, with several from much earlier.  Reproductions from this collection were done on paper and canvas.  The canvas reproductions were often textured and can easily be mistaken for originals. Do a search for Donald Art Company or DAC on eBay, Esty or other online selling sites to see what you find.  Claudia, Randy and Vivien guarantee the authenticity of their sales, supplying a certificate with each purchase. Please take a moment to read the history of the Donald Art Company and feel free to contact them with any questions.
