Directors: Anisabelle and Florence Berès
The Galerie was founded by Huguette Berès in 1952 and is now run by Anisabelle Berès-Montanari, her daughter. The third generation, represented by Florence Montanari, is already present.
From its inception, the gallery has specialised in two domaines: Japanese graphic art, housed at 35 rue de Beaune, and Modern and Contemporary art presented at 25 quai Voltaire.
Besides the Nabis artists (Vuillard, Bonnard, Denis, Roussel), the gallery displays artists from the early 20th century; cubist artists including Picasso, Braque, Gleizes, Survage, Lipchitz, Herbin; abstract artists such as Nicolas de Staël and Max Ernst and contemporary artists Antoine Poncet and Pierre Lesieur.
For several years, the gallery has organized successful and important exhibitions (François Bonvin, Maurice Denis, Au Temps des Nabis, Les Peintres-graveurs, Au Temps des Cubistes, Serge Férat).
The Galerie Berès participates in prestigious art fairs around the world : the Paris Biennale, the European Fine art Fair in Maastricht, the New York Salon Art & Design, and the Brussels Antiques & Fine arts Fair.
Due to the gravity of the international situation resulting from the spread of COVID-19 and in order to protect the health of all parties concerned, we have decided to cancel the 29th edition of the Salon du dessin.
France officially declared a state of health emergency on 24 March for two months and there are still numerous uncertainties regarding the evolution of the pandemic over the coming months. These factors make it impossible to reprogram the Salon before the summer of 2020 and the Salon du dessin, which usually attracts numerous other events in Paris for a week, will therefore not take place this year.
Louis de Bayser, President of the Salon du dessin said “this is a difficult decision to take with regard to all those who worked hard for this edition, but our priority is to protect the health of all our exhibitors, visitors and partners”.
We send our thoughts to all those affected by this epidemic and hope that this unprecedented health situation will quickly change favorably.
