Directors: Rébecca Sack et Aude Louis Carvès
Founded in 2020 by Rebecca Sack and Aude Louis Carvès. The gallery specializes in Japanese artists from the ‘Nouvelle Ecole de Paris’ (Toshimitsu Imai, Key Sato, Hisao Domoto, Yasse Tabuchi, Kumi Sugai). Joining the thriving artistic scene of the French capital in the 1950's, these artists have in common their unprecedented impact on the growing abstraction movement in the West.
The project emerged from a shared passion for post-war Japanese painting and crossed trajectories on the art market. After years spent in Asia and China, Rebecca Sack becomes director of the gallery Jacques Barrère in 2012. She holds a master degree in Chinese language and International Relations from the LSE. Graduated in Art history, Aude Louis Carves created the Asian art department of Aguttes auction house before joining Bonhams in 2015 as head of Asian art in France.
The gallery is located in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés in Paris, amidst the historical Cour de Rohan. Japanese post-war paintings are regularly on display along with creations of Asian contemporary ceramics. In 2021 the gallery participated in the art fairs Asia Now and Biennale Paris.

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.
