The Galerie Laurentin celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2021.

The gallery in Paris, situated at 23 quai Voltaire, opened a second space located in rue Ernest Allard in the Sablon district of Brussels in 2013.

Since its opening, the Galerie Laurentin has devoted itself to modern art by holding monographic exhibitions and regularly organising exhibitions devoted to contemporary artists.

The participation in important fairs, such as TEFAF in Maastricht, the Salon du Dessin in Paris,  Art Brussels and artgenève gave an international visibility to the gallery.

This gouache, created in 1938, is a book cover design for "Workshop Remarks" by André Salmon, focusing on the memoirs of writers and artists. The artwork features black horizontal bands indicating the author, title, and purpose of the book, against a background of circular shapes composed of various gradients of blues, grays, and whites often juxtaposed on either side of an imaginary central line. Through this artwork, Sonia Delaunay demonstrates the development of simultaneous contrasts, which she would push to its climax for the final cover design consisting of a red semicircle facing a slightly offset black semicircle, and white curved lines.
