The Gallery Diane de Polignac

The History of Art is constantly being rewritten

Collectors’ visions evolve on an individual level, then considerably from one generation to another. Our role, through our exhibitions and publications, is to contribute to honing this view and to rethinking the History of Art.

The gallery, which specializes in XXth century Art, explores mainly Post-War movements such as American and European Abstract Expressionism, Kinetic Art, Art Brut and Surrealism. Within this period, we promote artists from all over the world, more specifically those who chose France as their place of creation for some or all of their lives.

They include the French-Chinese artists Zao Wou-Ki, T’ang Haywen and Sanyu, the Americans Sam Francis, Paul Jenkins and Marc Tobey, the Europeans Gérard Schneider, Hans Hartung, Olivier Debré , the South-Americans Roberto Matta, Wifredo Lam and Carmelo Arden Quin and the French-Russians Serge Poliakoff and Nicolas de Staël.

Our aim is to introduce – or re-introduce – in a new light, the great artists of this period of artistic effervescence

The Gallery Diane de Polignac also has a very active publication program. In addition to exhibition catalogs and our books in co-edition with Arteos, the gallery is publishing the Catalogue Raisonné of the painted work by the French-Swiss artist Gérard Schneider, as well as the Catalogue Raisonné of the work of the American painter Loïs Frederick.

The Gallery also offers very fine pieces of furniture created by contemporary Artists in exclusivity for the Gallery. Combining the beauty of shape with the excellence of the finest craftsmen and cabinetmakers, our artists create sustainable, timeless and iconic pieces, exploring the boundaries between Art and Object.
