Situated in the 7th arrondissement of Paris, the Gallery Diane de Polignac specialises in XXth Century art. It explores mainly Post-War movements such as American and European Abstract Expressionism, Kinetic Art, Art Brut and Surrealism. Within this period, they 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.
The gallery also shows fine pieces of furniture created exclusively by contemporary artists. Combining the beauty of shape with the excellence of the finest craftsmen and cabinetmakers, the artists create sustainable, timeless and iconic pieces, exploring the boundaries between Art and Object.
In addition to exhibition catalogues and books produced in collaboration 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.
