Amélie- Margot Chevalier and Céline Letessier

Galerie Chevalier now 25, rue de Bourgogne, Paris 7th, after almost 40 years on quai Voltaire, specialises in antique tapestries (16th to 18th century), modern tapestries (1920 to 1960), contemporary tapestries (1970 to nowadays), and fiber art.

An ineluctable point of passage for the aficionados of textiles, the Galerie Chevalier has an international clientele comprised of private individuals, museum curators and interior designers.

Besides the magnificent antique tapestries, one can admire the great artists from the 20th tapestry Renewal (Jean Lurçat, Mathieu Matégot, Pierre Daquin, Emile Gilioli, Robert Wogensky…), and the artists who use, adapt or divert this medium in the 21th century (Jon Eric Riis, Françoise Paressant, Mathieu Ducournau or Victoria Tanto). Antique Oriental and European carpets are also on display with Parsua contemporary rugs, created and edited by Galerie Chevalier.

The gallery is an extension of the family’s business started in 1917. Today, Céline Letessier and Amélie- Margot Chevalier, the current administrator and artistic director, respectively, pursue the work started by their parents: Dominique Chevalier and Nicole de Pazzis-Chevalier.
