Marc Chabot Fine Arts was founded in 1990 by Marc Chabot; himself a draftsman, printmaker and curator. A private dealer specializing in fine original prints and other works on paper, Marc Chabot Fine Arts also offers estate consultations, fine art appraisals, paper conservation and museum matting services.
Our growing inventory of fine prints and other works on paper concentrates on works of the 19th-20th centuries from America and abroad, though we may also have the occasional photograph, old master print, reference book or bit of art ephemera to offer. We also have a particular interest in artists with ties to Connecticut, where we are based.
Our inventory is viewable by appointment only, as well as at select shows during the year. New shows may be added as the year progresses, so please check back with us. View upcoming shows.
Please contact us for specifics on any works in our inventory; or with your own collecting interests, appraisal or conservation needs.

Marc Thomas Chabot
Artist, collector, curator, draftsman, musician, print maker, Lost In Space aficionado
My work is mostly from imagination, informed by my life experience and love of drawing. I have always found drawing to be the most intimate, flexible and immediate means of visual expression. I marvel at its range of invention and I delight in the touch of hand to paper. It is sensual and intellectual, emotive and analytical.
The spirit and cycles of nature, its changing forms and the desire to create and reinvent this anew from within myself form the content of my work. Sometimes familiar, often not, it is hoped one touches on something deeper. In a time where we are reaching out around and beyond our world, one may reflect upon where one is by discovering through art a place where one has not yet been.
As for the content of my other works, it is true that I draw the figure from life and have run a life-drawing group for 23 years. I love drawing the nude; such a thing of beauty, testing one’s powers of observation and ability to render. The dialogue between artist and model also offers confirmation of our connections and empathy with one another; and the opportunity to celebrate and share it with others.
