Galerie Paul Proute

The Paul Prouté Gallery was founded almost 150 years ago. Since 1920, it has been based on rue de Seine, in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés. Today, it is the fourth generation of dealers.

Through the publication of two catalogs a year (June and December), it offers a wide selection of drawings and prints from the 16th century to the present day, original works by artists such as Dürer, Rembrandt, Goya, Whistler, Vallotton, Picasso, Matisse, Debré, Delaunay, Asse and Soulages. The gallery also regularly publishes thematic or monographic catalogs (Architecture et Ornement in 2014, Portrait d'artiste in 2020, Jean-Baptiste Sécheret in 2021, L'Estampe en France au XVIIe in 2023...). The quality and authenticity of the works are the main criteria upheld by the gallery, whose many clients include the world's leading French and international institutions, as well as enlightened and passionate amateurs and collectors.

In addition to the FAB fair, Galerie Prouté is a founding member of the prestigious Salon du Dessin, held annually at the Palais Brongniart in Paris.
