Presentation of the gallery

Established for more than thirty years in two spaces in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés in Paris, the Galerie Georges-Philippe & Nathalie Vallois opened a third space in New York in 2023, on Madison Avenue, in partnership with David Fleiss of the 1900-2000 gallery.

Since 1990, the Galerie Georges-Philippe & Nathalie Vallois has been implementing a unique and rigorous program by associating contemporary art with the French historical movements of the 60s and 70s such as New Realism. Today, she represents the estates of Jacques Villeglé, as well as those of Jean Tinguely and Niki de Saint Phalle.

The gallery organized the first solo exhibitions in France of Californian artists such as Paul McCarthy (1994), Richard Jackson (2002), Martin Kersels (1999) as well as those of contemporary artists: Alain Bublex (France), Taro Izumi (Japan), Zhenya Machneva (Russia), Henrique Oliveira (Brazil), or the Iranian artist duo Peybak... More recently, she has broadened her horizons to American hyperrealism with John DeAndrea and Robert Cottingham.

Presentation of the artist in focus

Emanuel Proweller (1918-1981) was born in Lwow (Poland) into a Jewish family. A survivor of the Holocaust, he arrived in Paris in 1948 with one desire: to become a painter. He drew daily: with pen, gouache, felt-tip pen, oil, coloured pencil or ink; on any medium he could get his hands on. It was like a diary. In his works on paper we find the same preoccupations as in his paintings, his periods of geometric abstraction, his research around the figure, the everyday, life, soft and simple.
