DE BAYSER SA was founded by Patrick and Rose-Anne de Bayser in 1936.

It has since then provided drawings to collectors, helping them to make their choice, and to French and international museums searching for rare pieces.

The gallery presents a large selection of drawings, framed or loose, ranging from the sixteenth to the twentieth century in all European schools.

Bruno & Thérèse de Bayser and their sons now run this family gallery.
