Founded in 1984 in Paris, the gallery has remained faithful to the impetus given by its first exhibition, dedicated to the graphic work of Robert Motherwell, by cultivating an abundant and rigorous relationship with the works and artists. Over the decades, the gallery's identity has been refined, while maintaining the guiding principle of never forbidding itself.
In addition to programming and monitoring exhibitions, the gallery has developed an editorial vision. It publishes and co-publishes several books per year to accompany each visitor in his or her desire to learn more about the artists and their works. In doing so, Bernard Jordan puts into practice an idea of art as a daily and long-term companionship.
