An antique dealer, specialized in 19th and 20th Century Sculpture, Nicolas Bourriaud, who was raised in an artistic environment, developed a passion for French bronze sculptures at an early age.
Works of art of some of the greatest sculptors such as Barye, Belmondo, Joseph Bernard, Bugatti, Carpeaux, Dalou, Godchaux, Guyot, Rodin, Pompon or Sandoz are displayed in his gallery. These remarkable bronzes with nuanced patina bear the mark of prestigious founders such as Barbedienne, Hebrard, Rudier, Siot Decauville, Susse, Valsuani…
Every sculpture is chosen with utmost care, each of them carrying all the greatness of the 19th and beginning of the 20th Century French Sculpture.
