What kind of art do you represent? Can you please make examples?
Vintage and mid century. We have 3 areas of specialty. Mostly museum pieces in furniture such as Charlotte Perriand, Pierre Jeanneret and Le Corbusier. In ceramics we have Picasso, Madoura, Roger Capron and Derval. For the memo Capron and Derval built the Byblos hotel in Saint-Tropez. Derval used to work for Picasso, and he used to make ceramics for him and sign Picasso. I love understated artists because they hide a true talent and dexterity. They can adapt to any personality and replicate their art in such a way that you would never make a difference behind Picasso’s signature of Derval for Picasso. Similarly in art we represent mostly l’école de Nice. Ben gilli villat Klein and my favourite Albert Chubac. He currently has an entire floor dedicated to him in Nice art museum called Mamac.
What is your favorite city to live and why?
I would have loved to live in New York. I strive to be busy I think it feeds my soul. Perhaps the next step for the gallery?
Otherwise I love Paris. I think it’s going to gain such a strong place in the art department with Brexit. We have amazing museums with great collections and exhibitions. Nevertheless another passion of mine is ballet - needless to say Moscow and Saint Petersburg are much more interesting for that!
Paris in three words .. ? What do you like most in Paris?
Romantic, eclectic and artistic. I love Paris because it embodies romance and is rich in architecture and history. Its becoming a very important player in modern and contemporary art. I love that Paris can be very classic and underground at the same time. You can in the very same day go visit the Bacon exhibition in Pompidou and in the evening go to the very same museum for the most underground party you’ve ever seen, organized by Rick Owens!! I love walking around Ile Saint-Louis to organize my thoughts and get some air too. The beauty of this city never ceases to amaze me!
How would you characterize yourself and what means professionalism for you?
I’m a very calm and soft person. I carry a lot of compassion which is not always easy as a business Woman.. One of my key and chore values is to respect people’s time which both refers to my customers and employees - I’m very thankful for everyone I meet and the amount of time people dedicate to me, to my gallery, to my artists and employees. Its the most rewarding part of my business!
