Presentation of the gallery

Galerie Lelong & Co. is a contemporary art gallery established in Paris since 1981 and in New York since 1985. The creation of the gallery at 13 rue de Téhéran in 1945, by Aimé Maeght, was marked, during the first thirty years, by the presentation of great artists such as Francis Bacon, Alexander Calder, Marc Chagall, Eduardo Chillida, Alberto Giacometti, Joan Miró and Antoni Tàpies. When Aimé Maeght died in 1981, the gallery took its current name.

Today, it exhibits the work of internationally renowned artists such as Pierre Alechinsky, Günther Förg, David Hockney, Jannis Kounellis, David Nash, Jaume Plensa, Christine Safa, Kiki Smith, Barthélémy Toguo and Fabienne Verdier. Galerie Lelong & Co. also works with the estates of several great figures of twentieth-century art such as Etel Adnan, Karel Appel, Eduardo Chillida, Barry Flanagan, Ana Mendieta, Joan Miró and Antoni Tàpies.

She has developed the production of monumental sculptures for public space with artists such as Jean Dubuffet, Jaume Plensa, Ursula von Rydingsvard and Barthélémy Toguo.

Anxious to present the work of these artists in the diversity of its media and techniques, Galerie Lelong & Co. has a large publishing sector that produces and distributes the original prints (engravings, lithographs, digital prints, etc.) created by the artists.

Presentation of the artist in focus

While Pierre Alechinsky has long liked to draw on old papers (invoices, correspondence, accounting sheets, etc.) found here and there, he also sometimes works on his own paperwork, essentially his monthly "Schedules", which he pins to the wall of his office to write down appointments, tasks to be done...

In recent months, he has had an engraved copper plate printed in red, in the centre of a batch of timetables, that has never been printed. Then he drew around the engraving, in ink and wash. Center and perimeter, a constant in the artist's work. This sequel is entitled Weekly and will be shown for the first time at Drawing Now.
