    To remain close to the artists, curators and collectors you have been working with.

    How would you describe the relationship between your gallery and the artists you represent?

    Some comments coming from children are always welcome and often quite funny.

    What your first FIAC like?

    FIAC is unique. No venue can beat the Grand Palais and the organizers are truly fair to everyone.

    Near our Paris gallery we are so lucky to have Claude Colliot, an amazing chef.

    Can you recommend cool hidden places in Paris?
