THIRTY UNDER THIRTY 03.03.21 – 09.04.21

Two art dealers, one exhibition, one common catalogue: THIRTY UNDER THIRTY !

Two paths, two experiences and two different tastes yet the same vision: to carefully select works which best represent each artist. Each one of them is remarkable for their originality, their quality, their guaranteed authenticity and their perfect state of conservation.

We are delighted to have been able to assemble pieces of various techniques (paintings, works on paper, sculptures, photographs, lithographs), covering different artistic movements from the beginning of the 20th century to the present day – eaach work of art being unique, each collector being unique.

THIRTY UNDER THIRTY is the result of this selection: 30 works under 30,000 CHF.

The eclectic catalog (on demand) is an opportunity to travel through time and acquire the piece that will complete your collection or introduce you to the pleasure of starting one.

VICTOR VASARELY: IN THE LABYRINTH OF MODERNISM – A gallery loan at Städel Museum, Frankfurt am Main

VICTOR VASARELY: IN THE LABYRINTH OF MODERNISM – A gallery loan at Städel Museum, Frankfurt am Main
This autumn the Städel Museum, Frankfurt, is holding a retrospective of the work of Hungarian-French artist Victor Vasarely (1906-1997).
 
Galerie Philippe David is lending a fascinating self-portrait executed in 1944. The artist’s face gazing out from the shattered shards of a broken mirror. Vasarely is widely considered as the `grandfather’ and leader of the op art movement.
Originally a graphic designer he became intrigued with experimenting with geometric shapes and patterns to create captivating illusions of spatial depth. Op art reached its zenith in the 1960s. However, this retrospective, `Victor Vasarely. In the Labyrinth of Modernism’, traces the artist’s works over six decades, including early works such as this 1944 self-portrait. Galerie Philippe David is honoured to be part of this all-encompassing retrospective enabling this predominant 20th century artist to be seen afresh.
The exhibition runs between 26th September 2018 to 13th January 2019.

MANGUIN: LA VOLUPTÉ DE LA COULEUR – Fondation de l’Hermitage, Lausanne

MANGUIN: LA VOLUPTÉ DE LA COULEUR – Fondation de l’Hermitage, Lausanne
Galerie Phillippe David is currently at the Fondation de l’Hermitage, Lausanne exhibiting fourteen stunning works, gathered from a number of European and USA private collections, by Henri Manguin (1874-1949).
 
Manguin took his inspiration from the vivid hues of the Mediterranean and the life of the French Riviera; capturing the colours and palette of the region where he both lived and painted. His works can be found in many eminent private collections as well as such galleries at the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, and The Museum of Modern Art in New York.  Manguin was heavily influenced by the work of the Impressionists, before becoming a key member of the early 20th century Fauvism group.  This distinguished group of artists included such notables as Dufy, Matisse and Derain, their works characterised by the use of strong colours and heavy brushwork.
 
This group of fourteen captures the essence of Manguin’s works; bright landscapes, delectable still-lifes and Aphrodite-like women, caught in the act of dressing or bathing.

EXHIBITION: NINO MILONI / THINK ABOUT IT

EXHIBITION: NINO MILONI / THINK ABOUT IT

Galerie Philippe David is delighted to be the venue for Zurich-born conceptional artist Nino Miloni’s very first exhibition: ‘Think About It’.

 40-year-old Nino is self-taught, his works draw on his observations and musings about the world around us all, resulting in his unique and exceptional works.  Miloni’s aim is to make the observer part of the work, drawing them in, and making them connect and think about what they are seeing. Miloni uses a range of high-quality materials; juxtaposing woods, metals and bold three-dimensional multi-coloured neon elements, which combine to create arresting and searching works.

Nino Miloni focusses on the tools of our everyday life, often banal and overlooked objects; waste paper bins, clothes pegs and the like. Miloni shatters the object’s mundanity, encouraging the onlooker to challenge their perception and consciousness, demanding them to question and examine their own emotions and understandings. He makes the spectator part of the piece, creating a dynamism and relationship between viewed and viewer.

In all his pieces Nino Miloni involves, challenges and interrogates the observer; encouraging them to question and reflect on their own opinions and perceptions. In other words, Miloni is giving us the chance to Think About It.

EXHIBITION: Peter DRIBEN – PIN UPS

EXHIBITION: Peter DRIBEN – PIN UPS

Galerie Philippe David is delighted to announce its opening exhibition of 2018.  The gallery’s year will start, in January, with a spectacular exhibition of the work of Peter Driben; the doyen of the American Pin-Up, one of the most iconic populist art movements of the 20th century. Driben’s work is bold, fun, flirtatious, visually exciting and highly prized.  

The Pin-Up reached its zenith as an art form as the USA entered the Second World War and Driben was one of the main exponents.  The scantily clad models, with their idealised physical features, served as morale boosters for troops. The models and their poses, which often include a `wardrobe malfunction’, are risqué but never explicit, erotic but safe enough to pin up at work, coquettish but not scandalous.

BRAFA Art Fair in January 2018

BRAFA Art Fair in January 2018

Galerie Philippe David is delighted and honoured to be attending its first BRAFA Art Fair in January 2018, in conjunction with the Salzburg-based Thomas Salis Gallery.

In January Galerie Philippe David will be bringing to BRAFA a range of pieces including three stunning images which reflect both the gallery’s depth and focus. These include the:

  • L’église de Montigny, effet d’automne, 1908, by the French avant-garde Francis Picabia, formerly in Swiss and Italian private collections.
  • A work by the German artist Emil Nolde, Zwei Dampfer, exhibited in 2012 at the Albertina Museum, Vienna.
  • An ink and colour crayon untitled work on paper by Joan Miró, published in the seminal J. Dupin and A. Lelong-Mainaud, Joan Miró catalogue raisonné, drawings II, 1938-1959, Paris, 2010.

The Thomas Salis Gallery will be exhibiting in conjunction with Galerie Philippe David – a stimulating yet complementary partnership. The Salzburg-based Thomas Salis Gallery has been a well-regarded fixture at numerous art fairs over the past thirty years, specialising in 19th and 20th century art. Its focus lies with French Impressionists, Fauvists and German Expressionists.

Gallery owner, Thomas von Salis, is a renowned and highly regarded expert in his field. Before setting up on his own Philippe David has previously had the privilege of working with von Salis for over eight years and he looks forward to having the opportunity to do so again in Brussels.
