For over 34 years Galerie DUMONTEIL has played a major role in the discovery and rediscovery of the greatest figurative artists from the 20th Century. In hosting many personal and thematic exhibitions, the gallery has allowed Art lovers to appreciate the talent of the gifted artists who have dedicated their work to the theme of the animal; from Bugatti to Giacometti, Guyot, Pompon to Artus, along with many others including Camille Roche, Jouve, Pierre Christophe, Marcel Derny, Navellier, Tremont and Van Ryswyck.
In parallel, the Gallery has also focused on the Colonial theme, as well as the Human Figure, exhibiting works by artists including E.A Bourdelle, Georges Coulon, Rodin, Henri Bouchard, Troubetzkoy, Séraphin Gilly, Zadkine; Bizette-Lindet, Maillol, André Maire, Camille Claudel, R.Couturier, Anna Quinquaud.
Over the last 20 years, the discovery and promotion of the best contemporary animal sculptors has taken an increasingly important place alongside the works of the Greatest Artists of the 1920’s.
Today, Daviau, Fiori, Bodin, Voituriez, Bintz and Celotti, share the Gallery space with their illustrious predecessors and compete for the attention of the discerning collector.
Paintings of Helmut Koller and photos of Eric Pillot complete this exclusive choice of contemporary work of art on the animal theme.
After a successful and permanent presence in Shanghai at Sinan Mansions, Galerie Dumonteil has inaugurated its New York gallery located at 475 Park Avenue in midtown Manhattan in 2012. This latest gallery has enhanced, because of its dimension, the presentation to the gallery’s international clientele of its Artists’ large-scale artworks, which have encountered a significant success within the last years.
