PARAMOUR FINE ARTS (ED & KAREN OGUL)
FRANKLIN, MI US
Paramour Fine Arts was founded in the late 1970's by Ed and Karen Ogul as a natural progression of their mutual interest in 20th century art. Ed Ogul has a background in education having served as a teacher and administrator in the Detroit Public Schools for over 30 years as well as an instructor at Wayne State University. He is now retired from education and devotes full time to this endeavor. Karen is a retired neo-natal intensive care registered nurse. Paramour Fine Arts is a member in good standing of the IFPDA (International Fine Print Dealers Association). Paramour Fine Arts maintains a large inventory of artwork, consisting mostly of 20th century American and European prints as well as paintings from the same period. Our specialties include social realism of the 1930' and 1940's including 100s of WPA prints, American regionalism, arts and crafts color woodblock prints, African-American artists and images, and French prints of the Belle Epoque period focused mainly on color aquatints. We have a large website which is easily searched, but also have many items not yet listed. We are pleased to respond to your questions and requests.

Our booth contains a sampling of our diverse offerings. Not only have we featured some of our artists, but we most often have numerous other offerings by the same artists on our website. We are introducing additionaI newly discovered work by the Detroit African-American artist, printmaker, and sculptor George Rogers. He produced unique prints called Sculpturegraphs as well as equally unique sculptural plant collages. We are excited to have this work. Hopefully, you will find artwork which is of interest in building a collection or simply selecting just one print. It is my goal as a dealer to be helpful in this endeavor. Please feel free to contact us and to create a dialogue regarding your collecting interests.
