This exhibition is devoted to the works on paper of Dora Maar, works, for the most part exploratory, made during a period of voluntary reclusion that lasted more than forty years. 
It is the result of an intense preparation and a real attachment, in the course of our research, to the character of Dora Maar.  

Fascinating and moving Dora Maar.  We wanted to learn more abo...

A work from the Pentcheff gallery lent to the Giverny museum

Within the framework of the exhibition : "Côté Jardin. From Monet to Bonnard" at the Musée des Impressionnismes in Giverny, the gallery is lending a work by Henri Martin from its collections.

The theme of the garden is dear to the Impressionists, painters of the open air, who were inspired by the new public parks of the capital and then devoted some of their compositions to th...



In the privacy of painters: René Gruau

Oatmeal and Bemberg fabrics

In 2012, the Galerie Alexis Pentcheff was honoured to present a retrospective of Joseph Inguimberty’s work, sixty years after the only personal exhibition dedicated to him, held in his native city, at...

Born in South of France, Marseille, Joseph Inguimberty arrives in Indochina in the 1920s with a traditional perception of art, acquired through his artistic education. However, the painter demonstrates quickly a profound fascination for those exotic flamboyant landscapes, their unusual flatness and the damp atmosphere. There, Inguimberty approaches his art in a resol...
