After many years spent as a collector of antique paintings and drawings, Franck Baulme started a merchant activity in 2008. In 2014 he opened his gallery, located at 1 Quai Voltaire in Paris, in the Hôtel de Tessé, an 18th century private mansion, opposite the Louvre Museum. He exhibits paintings and drawings from the 16th to 19th century, mainly French, Italian, Flemish and Dutch.
Since the opening of the gallery, many museums have enriched their collections with important acquisitions through the gallery. Such was the case with the Louvre Museum, the Fabre Museum in Montpellier, the Museum of Romantic Life, the Museum of Fine Arts in Orléans, the Royal Castle in Warsaw, the National Gallery in Washington, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, among many others.
