Flemish and Dutch schools. It is considered the premiere gallery of reference in this field.
The Paris gallery was opened in 1984 at 100 rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré. Just a stone’s throw from the Elysée Palace, collectors and connoisseurs from around the globe pass through its doors.
And now (2011) de Jonckheere Gallery is also located in a brand new space in the heart of the historical part of Geneva, the gallery offers a presentation of a selection of hitherto unseen works.
Represented at the major international fine arts fairs, including the “Biennale des Antiquaires” in Paris, “TEFAF” in Maastricht, "Frieze Masters" in London, the gallery brings its collection to art lovers several times a year.
From its very beginnings, Flemish painting has aroused universal interest and is showcased in the top museums throughout the world. The De Jonckheere Gallery’s reputation has been built on the rigorous standards by which the paintings are selected and for the past 40 years, the collection has been documented in one annual catalogue.
In this way, we have had a hand in the acquisition of a significant number of the greatest works from this period of painting.
Over the past 10 years, we have broadened our scope to include the Masters of the Italian Veduti of the eighteenth century, on which we advise numerous collectors.
In addition, Georges and François De Jonckheere may be consulted by art lovers on the purchase and sale of any painting requiring their expertise.
Georges and François De Jonckheere are members of the French National Antique Dealers’ Syndicate.
