Biography :
Edgar Brandt (1880-1960) was a French ironworker and arms manufacturer. It was in 1902 that he created in Paris, in the 16th arrondissement, on Michel-Ange Street, the Brandt establishments where, alongside ironwork, he began to produce various light armaments. In 1921, he moved to the corner of rue Erlanger and boulevard Murat.

In the wake of the success of the International Exhibition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts in 1925, Edgar Brandt inaugurated his gallery at 27, boulevard Malesherbes on December 10, 1925. On several levels, he exhibited his creations of art metalwork, furniture, decorative objects, sculptures, lighting. He collaborated with the Daum and Lalique factories. In his gallery were then exhibited his works and those of other artists. The Brandt gallery will be the first decorative art gallery in Paris. At the same time, Edgar Brandt opened a second showroom in London and opened a branch "Ferro Brandt" in New York which was the showcase of the great Art Deco artists in North America.

In 1930, Edgar Brandt hosted in December the first exhibition of a group made up of the best animal artists of the moment, François Pompon, Édouard-Marcel Sandoz, Paul Jouve, Georges Guyot, and Gaston Suisse. This first exhibition of "animals" at the Brandt gallery was very successful.
