Galerie de la Présidence : a family story

Florence Chibret-Plaussu Galerie de la Présidence

“Art is a flame that is passed on from generation to generation”

Galerie de la Présidence is a family story and if this passion is hereditary, it is because both mother and daughter know how to combine art in a very complementary way.

Françoise Chibret-Plaussu created Galerie de la Présidence in 1971, at the mythical Parisian crossroads of Place Beauvau and Faubourg Saint-Honoré opposite the Elysée Palace. Her daughter, Florence Plaussu joined her more than twenty years ago and has now become the Director of the gallery.
