FOUR GENERATIONS OF EXPERTS
Galerie Chevalier just moved 25, rue de Bourgogne, Paris 7th, after almost 40 years on quai Voltaire. The Galerie Chevalier specialises in antique tapestries (16th to 18th century), modern tapestries (1920 to 1960), contemporary tapestries (1970 to nowadays), and fiber art.
An ineluctable point of passage for the aficionados of textiles, the Galerie Chevalier has an international clientele comprised of private individuals, museum curators and interior designers. Besides the manificent antique tapestries, one can admire the great artists from the 20th tapestry Renewal (Jean Lurçat, Mathieu Matégot, Pierre Daquin, Emile Gilioli, Wogensky…), and the artists who use, adapt or divert this medium in the 21th century (Jon Eric Riis, Françoise Paressant, Daniel Riberzani, Mathieu Ducournau, Aurélie Mathigot ou Sandrine Pincemaille).
Antique Oriental and European carpets are also on display with Parsua contemporary rugs, created by Galerie Chevalier. The gallery is an extension of the family’s business started in 1917. Today, Céline Letessier and Amélie- Margot Chevalier, the current administrator and artistic director, respectively, pursue the work started by their parents: Dominique Chevalier and by Nicole de Pazzis-Chevalier, the two sisters, very close to each other, have been working together for a decade now. The art director of the gallery, Amélie-Margot, is also in charge of the documentation regarding all pieces. She is an expert in modern tapestries and contemporary textile Art (member of the Compagnie Nationale des Experts and Syndicat National des Antiquaires). Céline is the general manager, she is developing as well the contemporary rug brand Parsua. Their philosophy : “We may represent the past but we have a feeling of what comes ahead.” (Gio Ponti)
