Why should you buy a bronze sculpture
from The Large Art Company?

  If you’re not asking that question you should be because the purchase of a bronze sculpture can be a significant investment. It is also a timeless and nearly indestructible piece of art that will remain in your family for many generations to come.  Anyone can get a hold of catalog pictures and throw up a web site, add some phony references and make outrageous claims of quality, but do you really know what you are getting? 

Richard Rist,  Karen Rist, Grayson Rist, Maxwell RistUnlike many online art dealers we also have a real (not cyber) art gallery and studio and have a national reputation for our sculpture. We sell some of the finest custom sculpture made today and protecting our reputation is important. Our work can be seen in museums, public art displays, monuments and memorials around the country. A piece of art from us actually means something and contributes to its lasting value.

We give the personal customer service that you would expect from an art gallery. We stand behind every sale we make and if you do have a problem, you will deal with the very same person that took your order. We don't have vast cubicles of customer service representatives selling everything from bronze statues to perfume and treat you like a number. When you call here you will most likely reach the owner of the company. This level of service is rare when shopping on the Internet.

Our expertise in the bronze sculpture industry is not just puffery. The owner, Richard Rist, is an artist and a sculpture dealer and collector for over 25 years. In addition to our in-house studio, we work with a network of independent artists around the United States. We’re not a big business, but this is our profession.

The Large Art Company is one of the most respected art dealers in the country. Artists and foundries are eager to work with us, so if you are looking for something and don’t see it on our web site you should call or drop us an email. There is a good chance we can get it and if not we can make it. Our prices are always fair and we stand behind every sale we make.

About our competitors, let me just say this; anyone can get a hold of a catalog and put up a web site. We see them come and go every day. One company boasted about their membership in the Better Business Bureau while sporting an "F" rating for the number of complaints and false advertising.  I see they are now unrated and flagged with an alert from the BBB.  Click here to see for yourself.  The BBB rating system goes AAA, AA, A, BBB, BB, B, CCC and then D.  So you would have to try pretty hard to get an "F" rating.  Some boast of their quality while selling low quality imports from Thailand. Many of them have never even seen the sculptures they sell.  Several of them routinely engage in false and misleading advertising. Most of them remain anonymous, provide no physical location and are only reachable by a PO Box.

As a bronze collector, one of the most common questions you will get is “where did you get your sculpture?” We want you to be proud to answer, "an art gallery in Baltimore called The Large Art Company."

So, if quality and fair prices are important to you, you should buy from us. If one-on-one customer service from knowledgeable, experienced professionals is important to you, you should buy from us. If the reputation of the source of your sculpture is important to you, you should buy from us.

Obviously we want your business and it is important to us. But we don’t just want your business now.  We want your business in the future and all your family, friends and associates. If there is one thing I know about my customers it is that they rarely own just one piece of bronze art.  Every day we get calls from previous customers to order again or referrals from family and friends. That speaks for itself.

But our relationship does not end with a purchase.  We will be here after the sale as well, to answer any question you might have about care and cleaning, installation, advice about sculptures from others, or whatever.  We will never treat you like it is an imposition.  We have actually held a conference call on our day off to advise a community group on sculpture installation, at no cost whatsoever.  Moreover, if, God forbid, you should ever have a theft or fire, we are happy to provide you with duplicate receipts, certificates of authenticity or whatever you need to make a claim with your insurance company and get full value for your loss.

I realize this sounds like a sales pitch because, well, maybe it is.  But it is also true.  Bronze sculpture is an investment in a timeless and nearly indestructible piece of art that will be in your family for many generations to come.  Unless you are very young, I'm sure you have learned that the cheapest is rarely the best deal.
