James Bakker has long been known for his handling of artist estates. In 1974, Bakker brought works from the estate of Lee Lufkin Kaula to the attention of the American public. Long overshadowed by the interest in works by her husband, artist William J. Kaula, Lee's works had fallen into relative obscurity. Today her paintings are sought after by collectors and her prices have risen to equal and surpass those of her husband.

In 1976, the gallery mounted a major retrospective of E. Bernard Lintott. This was followed by exhibitions and publications on work by artists Gertrude Tonsberg, Clara Greenleaf Perry and Charles Henry Richert. Most notable was his scholarly catalogue on artist Margaret Jordan Patterson published in 1988. Bakker continues to be the leading authority on this important painter featured in the groundbreaking 2001 show on women artists," A Studio of Her Own" at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston

Today the gallery continues to represent works from many important artist estates including sculptor Bernard Simon, and Doris Lindo Lewis. Most recently, we are proud to represent works from the estates of Marion Hawthorne and Lillian Meeser.
