Presentation of the gallery

The Catherine Putman Gallery specializes in works on paper by contemporary artists: drawings, photographs and prints.

Located on the edge of the Marais in the Centre Pompidou district, the gallery is located upstairs, in a space that enjoys an intimate atmosphere and adapted to the presentation of works on paper.

Directed by Éléonore Chatin since 2009, the gallery regularly works with its historical artists: Geneviève Asse, Pierre Buraglio, Georg Baselitz, Jean Messagier, Georges Noël, Sophie Ristelhueber, Georges Rousse, Agathe May and Bernard Moninot.
She has also opened herself up to new collaborations with Keita Mori, Carmen Perrin, Frédéric Poincelet, Frédéric Malette, Rob Miles and Éloïse Van der Heyden.

The gallery also retains its activity as an art publisher initiated by Jacques and Catherine Putman in the 70s. The exhibitions, most often monographic, highlight both unique works and multiples.

Presentation of the artist in focus

For the first time, the gallery presents the works of Dana Cojbuc.
Born in 1979 in Romania, she graduated from the School of Fine Arts in Bucharest and now lives in Paris.
After developing a photographic work for several years, she made a singular and sensitive transition to drawing.
During an artistic residency at the Sunnhorland Museum in Norway in 2019, the transition from a purely photographic approach to a drawn vision of the landscape took place.
From her own prints, Dana Cojbuc extrapolates, redefines boundaries and reinvents the subject through drawing. The boundary between photography and charcoal work is subtle, mysterious, and opens the way to an imaginary landscape. This extension through drawing acts as a revelation of the graphic and plastic character of the real landscape, in which she sometimes intervenes beforehand in the manner of a land art artist. The gallery will present previously unseen works by the artist, made from images captured in the Landes, playing with the erratic verticality of trees and the moving materiality of soils.
A selection of recent works by Pierre Buraglio, Frédéric Poincelet and Georges Rousse will accompany this focus.
