About The North Point Gallery
After 30 years in San Francisco, the gallery has moved to Berkeley. Our new location is five minutes from I-80. We continue to offer fine nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century American and European paintings with an emphasis on the art of early California, as well as traditional contemporary paintings.
Alfred C. Harrison, Jr., President: After ten years as a private collector and researcher, Alfred Harrison assumed ownership of the gallery in 1985. He is a lecturer and author of many articles (view list of publications) on early California paintings
as well as monographs on William Keith, L.P. Latimer, and Thaddeus and Ludmilla Welch. In 2006, he wrote an essay and catalogue entries for California Impressions: Landscapes from the Wendy Willrich Collection published by the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. He is currently at work on a history of nineteenth-century California painting and a monograph on John Ross Key. Alfred Harrison was the guest curator for "The Golden Age of Yosemite Painting, 1859-1930, A Centennial Tribute," at the Transamerica Pyramid Lobby, San Francisco, CA. in 1991 and “Before the Bridge: 19th Century Paintings of the Golden Gate,” Transamerica Pyramid Lobby, San Francisco, CA in 2000. He also curated the San Francisco venue of the Gilbert Munger retrospective at The North Point Gallery in 2004 and the Bolinas Museum’s “Pastoral California: The Art of Thaddeus and Ludmilla Welch” in 2007.
