Biennale – Paris 2018


September 2018 | Paris, France

For its participation at the Paris Biennale 2018, Galerie Jacques Lacoste honoured an important group of creations of the 20th century Decorative Arts : Jean Royère, Pierre Chareau, Marc Du Plantier, Jean Dunand, Alberto Giacometti, Georges Jouve and André Borderie ; as well as pieces by major artists of the 20th century : Jean Arp, Mucio Fontana, Wassily Kandinsky and Pablo Picasso.

For this edition, the gallery exhibited a rare set by Jean Royère in exceptional original conditions : the Ours Polaire sofa, the Flaque coffee table in straw marquetry and a pair of Boulette armchairs.

These pieces, commissioned for Jean Royère around 1965, were acquired from the family of the first owner, Monsieur C., and are shown/revealed to the public for the first time.
