The Royal Provenance gallery has been located opposite the Opéra Garnier since 2019, in an apartment-showroom on the 4th floor. This new installation marks a turning point in the development of the gallery, formerly located at 45 rue de Penthièvre in the 8th arrondissement of Paris, offering customers and collectors greater confidentiality within an exhibition space steeped in history and of elegance.
The objective of the gallery directed by Maxime Charron is to offer collectors, dealers and museums around the world rare works of art and furniture with a provenance, if possible royal, or any other clearly identified. His passion and taste for unique works of art is linked to the natural quality of objects of royal or imperial provenance.
After several participations in national fairs such as the Salon de l’Objet d’Art at the Grand Palais as well as the Parcours de la Céramique, the Royal Provenance gallery is proud to exhibit since 2021 at international art fairs, TEFAF Maastricht and Fine Arts Paris – La Biennale.
