PRESENTATION GALLERY : Boccara
The Boccara Gallery is an international gallery founded in 1950.
The Boccara Gallery was one of the first to support modern tapestries. Today, it has a sublime collection of modern and antique tapestries as well as French rugs.
The Boccara Gallery is known for its high standards of quality and for its avant-garde approach to the discovery of 20th century artists (S. Delaunay, E. Gilioli, M. Mategot, F. Léger etc.). It is thanks to this avant-gardism that the Boccara gallery presents today a collection of tapestries by Jean Lurçat without equivalent. Indeed, Didier Marien, the owner of the gallery, immediately noticed the originality and audacity that distinguish Jean Lurçat and decided to devote a large part of his collection to the artist. All the tapestries are handmade and every detail is carefully studied.
Didier Marien is known on the world market as an expert and collector of rugs and tapestries. He is an honorary member of the European Chamber of Art Consultants (CECOA) and also of the International Confederation of Art Dealers (CINOA) and The Association of Art & Antiques Dealers (LAPADA). He runs this gallery with passion, always focusing on rarity, originality and quality of the pieces. The Boccara collection has been very successful with collectors and decorators and the gallery has presented them in the most important European and New York shows.
