Paris is an acknowledged capital and trendsetter of world art in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. And Montmartre Hill, the highest point in Paris and the site of an ancient Roman settlement, became the pinnacle of culture and the centre of contemporary art at the time. While collectors were buying up paintings and sculptures from prominent and emerging artists, our colleagues were keen to acquire iconic pieces from the studios and workshops of the artists of the time.
This has created collections of furniture 'with a history', many of which have been described by art experts in monographs about great cultural figures or depicted in the canvases and engravings of their contemporaries. Our predecessors have carefully preserved furniture masterpieces that may well have adorned the interiors of famous Montmartre artists. This is how Modigliani armchair, Rousseau sideboard, Delacroix gueridon, Picasso bergere chair, Renoir sofa and other pieces of furniture appeared in our collection, remarkable for their individuality and inspirational spirit. Nothing embellishes an antique as much as the stories of its former owners. The objects in our collection carry the creative atmosphere of Montmartre, where they have absorbed the subtle vibrations of high art over the years.
Art Antique has these treasures, which we are happy to pass on to you for interior design inspiration.
