Galerie de Bayser

Located on the first floor of a private mansion in the rue Sainte-Anne in Paris, our gallery has established itself as a reference for drawings both in France and on the international market.

Our family structure, created in 1936, and developed by our parents Bruno and Thérèse de Bayser, is now managed by four brothers, Augustin, Louis, Matthieu and Patrick. Founding members of the Salon du Dessin, we have been participating for four years now in the development of Fine Arts Paris.

By exhibiting both drawings, paintings and sculptures, we try to create an intimate atmosphere on our stand that makes the visitor feel at home.
