Dina Vierny, Maillol’s last model, opened her gallery in 1947 at 36 rue Jacob, a former bougnat transformed into a wooden case by Auguste Perret. The gallery became famous in Paris thanks to a first Maillol exhibition, then asserted itself with exhibitions by Rodin, Henri Laurens, Matisse, Vollard, Picasso, Kandinsky, Pougny, Dufy, Doucet, Charchoune, Gilioli, Couturier or Zitman. The gallery owner then fell in love with modern Primitives. In the early 1970s, she traveled to the Soviet Union where she discovered Kabakov, Bulatov, Yankilevsky and Oscar Rabin. She smuggled their works out of Russia and organized the famous exhibition Russian Avant-garde – Moscow 73.

Still driven by this same eclecticism, the gallery was then directed by Olivier Lorquin, son of Dina Vierny, who has now given way to his two sons, Pierre and Alexandre Lorquin, in January 2021. They are now redirecting the strategy from the gallery towards impressionism, modern and post-war art, by diversifying the list of artists. This global project aims to present new ambitious exhibitions at the gallery and outside the walls, but also to set up a series of publications related to these exhibitions.

Permanently presented artists : André Bauchant, Camille Bombois, Erik Boulatov, Robert Couturier, Jacques Doucet, Jean Ève, Émile Gilioli, Nikifor Krynicki, Ra’anan Levy, Séraphine Louis, Aristide Maillol, Fikret Moualla, Jules Pascin, Serge Poliakoff, Oscar Rabine, Judit Reigl René Rimbert, Louis Vivin, Vladimir Yankilevsky, Fahrelnissa Zeid
