Paris-based Galerie Dutko expands to London this autumn with the opening of its first London space in Mayfair, at 18 Davies Street. A leading authority on the Art Deco movement, Jean-Jacques Dutko is reputed for staging the finest examples of Art Deco furniture with contemporary works, and thus creating spectrums of arresting elegance.
The Gallery’s opening exhibition will include treasures from the Art Deco period, coupled with a number of specially commissioned works. Amongst the highlights of the exhibition will be an oak, brass and travertine low table with cubic feet by Paul Dupré-Lafon which captures Art Deco’s spirit of stylish functionality, while the works of Eugène Printz, once personal interior designer to Jeanne Lanvin, naturally offer complementary inventive forms from the period.
A recognised expert in Printz further to authoring an in depth historical biography on his works, Dutko has, in his illustrious career, sourced exquisite pieces for many institutions and international clients. Pieces on display will range from a Lampadaire ringed in oxidized bronze (1927) to a veneered desk supported by a hooped brass base (1930s). Amongst other astonishingly rare pieces, a major Art Deco highlight will be unveiled; an ebony and bronze desk covered in python skin by Marcel Coard (c.1925-30), used personally by the designer himself.
