Galerie Anne-Sophie Duval
Galerie Anne-Sophie Duval is one of the first Parisian galleries to have taken an active part in the rediscovery of French Art Deco creative design.
For nearly forty years, the gallery has exhibited in its prestigious space on quai Malaquais a selection of the best designers of early twentieth-century decorative arts, from the sober elegance of Jean-Michel Frank to the sophisticated modernity of Eileen Gray.
Along with the presentation of distinctive style such as Pierre Chareau, Jean Dunand, Armand-Albert Rateau, Paul Dupré-Lafon, Andre Groult or Alberto Giacometti, the gallery, now run by Julie Blum, also promotes the creativity of more confidential designers of the Mid-century period.
Through a series of retrospectives, the gallery has exhibited work of artists and movements who participated in the shaping of modernity: Etienne Cournault, a glass and mirror artist (2008), UAM and Bauhaus, showing German and French pioneers of Modernism (2010) and also the sculptural work of women ceramists of the early 1950s (2009) such as the stunning earthenware poetic creations of Elisabeth Joulia (2011).
Currently, the gallery is presenting in Paris a show dedicated to Primavera ceramics. These decorative objects with timeless shapes and rich array of glazes are emblematic of a rich dialogue between Art Deco esthetic and creative craftsmanship.
For the fourth consecutive year, the gallery will continue to show in Design Miami/ Basel a selection of the best pieces of the Art Deco and modernist period.
