Founded in 1923 the Didier Aaron gallery is in its third generation and is now directed from New York by Hervé Aaron. To enable a closer relationship with its clients, the gallery is also represented at prestigious locations in Paris, directed by Bruno Desmarest, and London. At its three locations the gallery shows important works of art of the seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
The gallery counts among its clients some of the greatest museums worldwide and in recent years has sold some significant works of art, including paintings by Titian and Nicolas Lancret. It regularly organizes ambitious thematic exhibitions.
