Paris: The collector’s eye might also fall on this elegant small Louis XV rosewood and amaranth veneered table stamped by D Genty and the guild’s JME mark, which was certainly made for D. Genty by BVRB. Located since 1992 in the heart of Faubourg Saint-Honoré, at the corner with rue de Berri, the gallery welcomes on its premises Collectors, Art Lovers and Museum Curators from all over the world. Galerie François Léage, fifth generation of renowned antiques dealers, offers an exceptional showcase for French, and some Russian, 18th century furniture and objets d’art. The Léage family proudly adheres to the family tradition of museum donators. Pieces originating from Galerie François Léage can be found, amongst others, in the collections of the Châteaux of Versailles and Compiègne, at the Jean-Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles and the Metropolitan Museum of New York.
Editor’s Note: For his first BRAFA participation (January 24th to February 1, 2015, Brussels), Guillaume Léage unveils to the Brussels public masterpieces of the eighteenth century in a decor playing with the contrasts of light and shadow. Presented as works of art in their own right, on island podiums or on shelves, the tables, commode and consoles, as well as candelabra, wall lights, clocks and vases are displayed in a restrained and contemporary setting on booth 68.
