A specialist in the framing of art works for more than 25 years, in his gallery Antoine Bechet possesses a wide choice of frames from the 15th to the 19th centuries, the memory of the skill of the craftsmen of the past.

In his workshops, he perpetuates this tradition with his team. A cabinet-maker/sculptor, a cabinet-maker gild and marquetry specialist, a gilt specialist and three frame-makers ply their talents to showcase paintings and drawings.

This savoir-faire has allowed him to foster the loyalty of a clientele composed of professionals and major collectors, including public and private institutions all over the world.  In November 2017 they were awarded with the label ‘Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant’ (EPV) which is a mark of recognition of the French State, to reward French firms for the excellence of their traditional and industrial know-how.
