A special relationship with Marcel Gromaire

Galerie de la Présidence has a special relationship with Marcel Gromaire, a major figure of the 20th Century.

He is permanently represented by Galerie de la Présidence and Françoise Chibret-Plaussu, its founder, prepared the descriptive catalogue of his oils in collaboration with François Gromaire (published in 1993). That of his watercolours is currently being prepared.

Among the exhibitions dedicated to Marcel Gromaire, the last one, in 2003, was about watercolors.
