Director: Véronique Jaeger
The Galerie Jeanne Bucher Jaegger is characterised by its expertise in European Modern and Contemporary Art of the XXth century.
Founded by Jeanne Bucher in 1925, the gallery remained in the same family for three generations and is now a European institution that has shown Modern Masters of the XXth century − such as the Abstract avant-garde artists, Cubists and Surrealists of the Pre-War era exhibited by Jeanne Bucher between 1925 and 1946.
Her successor Jean-François Jaeger took over the direction of the gallery in 1947 and exhibited major Post-War Abstract European and American artists, New Realists and Figurative painters of the 70s, Urban and Environmental sculptors of the 80s as well as Eastern artists now recognised as National Treasures in their own countries. Jean-François Jaeger still presides the gallery today, with 70 years of experience.
Véronique Jaeger,great grand-daughter of Jeanne Bucher and daughter of Jean-François Jaeger is today the main shareholder and the General Director of the gallery.
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.
