Born in Hanover in 1736, Gérard Henri Lutz moved to Paris in 1765, the year he married in the chapel of the Swedish Embassy, ??with one of his compatriots who, like him, belonged to the Lutheran Church.
Received master a few months later, on October 10, 1766, he worked in his studio in the rue des Gravilliers. He manufactures both Louis XV furniture, even in the Regency spirit, such as chests of drawers, as well as Transition or Louis XVI works, dressed in leaf veneer or various marquetry.
