GALERIE DE LA PRÉSIDENCE, Eugène BOUDIN, Scène de plage
   

Located opposite the Elysée Palace, the Galerie de la Présidence, founded in 1971, by Françoise Chibret-Plaussu, is now run by her daughter Florence.

We offer a selection of masters from the nineteenth to the twentieth century including Boudin, Buffet, Cross, Derain, Fautrier, Dufy, Giacometti, Gromaire, Hélion, Maillol, Marquet, Matisse, Poliakoff, Signac, Veira da Silva, Vlaminck and Vuillard.

We have mounted exhibitions devoted to Marquet, Vlaminck, Signac, Cross, Hélion, Maillol as to well as to Marcel Gromaire (producing the catalogue raisonné of his works in oil).

The gallery regularly works with leading museums, notably in 2016, on the Boudin retrospective held at the Musée d’Art moderne André-Malraux in Le Havre and on the Marquet exhibition at the Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris. In 2018, we lent a large number of works to the Musée des Impressionnismes in Giverny, for the exhibition “Color and light. The neo-impressionist Henri-Edmond Cross”.

More recently we have been participating to the exhibition « Marcel Gromaire l’élégance de la force » presented at the Musée Boudin in Honfleur, at Musée Paul Valéry in Sète and at the Museum la Piscine in Roubaix.
