Jeanne Bucher Jaeger | Paris, Marais Gallery


Founded in 1925 by Jeanne Bucher, the gallery is directly set in an avant-garde atmosphere and exhibits very early on the main artists of Modern Art: Arp, Braque, Ernst, Giacometti, Kandinsky, Klee, Léger, Masson, Miró, Mondrian, Picabia. Its course continued in 1947 under the direction of Jean-François Jaeger, who exhibited the great abstract artists of the 1950s and 1960s— Bissière, Dubuffet, Reichel, Staël, Tobey and Vieira da Silva—and later artists of the following generation of the 1960s to the 1980s such as Abakanowicz, Dado, Deux, Fromanger, Jorn, Nevelson, Rebeyrolle, along with exhibitions of Pre- Columbian, Oceanian and African art. The gallery also exhibited the great artists of urban and environmental art of the 1980s such as Raynaud, Singer, di Suvero and Karavan.

In 2004, after a decade at the head of the FIAC as Artistic Director, Véronique Jaeger became the Gallery’s General Director. She decided to open a new space of 2300 square feet in the Marais dedicated to the promotion of contemporary artists such as Michael Biberstein, Miguel Branco, Zarina Hashmi, Evi Keller, Rui Moreira, Hanns Schimansky, Susumu Shingu, Fabienne Verdier, Paul Wallach and Yang Jiechang. This new space was initially opened under the name Galerie Jaeger Bucher in order to distinguish it from the historical space on the rue de Seine and give it a breath of contemporaneity.

For twelve years, Véronique Jaeger has developed the Gallery around two axes. First, the enhancement of its historical activities through frequent loans to leading international institutions and acquisitions and sales of major works in the secondary market. Second, the pursuit of the initial spirit of the Gallery in its role as discoverer of new international artists. On the occasion of its 90th Anniversary in 2015, the Gallery was re-named Jeanne Bucher Jaeger.
