Galerie Jacques Lacoste is one of the bets design galleries in Paris that you should know. Specializing in 20th-century Decorative Arts, Jacques Lacoste has set out to promote French Design of the 1950s.
Particularly sensitive to the work of Jean Royère, Jacques Lacoste acquired his archives in 1997 and dedicated two exhibitions in Paris to the artist in 1999 and 2003, and one in New York at Sonnabend Gallery in March 2008. In 2003, he brought his expertise to bear on the publication of a book on Royère, and is now working on his catalogue raisonné.
Very passionate about 1950s decorative arts, Lacoste exhibits lighting by Serge Mouille, sculptures by Alexandre Noll and ceramics by Georges Jouve, Elisabeth Joulia, Pierre Szekely, Valentine Schlegel and André Borderie.
He also prepared the publication of a book on Max Ingrand that went along with an exhibition at his gallery in 2009.
