It all started in 1920 when Alphonse Bellier took the initiative of submitting for auction the modern artists of his time. Over four decades of activity, many sales have remained historic. Following Bellier’s steps, his son Jean-Claude Bellier led a career as an art expert and dealer alongside building a collection of major importance.
To mark the opening of a second Parisian gallery Quai Voltaire in 1988, Luc Bellier created (organised/made/curated) prestigious exhibitions such as “Polyptyques et Paravents, un siècle de création, 1890-1990” and participated to leading international art fairs.
In the 2000s, Luc Bellier was based rue de l’Élysée in a splendid gallery where monograph-exhibitions of Edvard Munch, Pablo Picasso, Édouard Vuillard, Jacques Henri Lartigue where held as well as thematic exhibitions such as From Berlin to London.
Bellier’s path as a specialist in modern and classic art brought him to maintain solid relations with a network of international collectors and cultural institutions such as the Art Institute of Chicago, the Neue Gallery in New York or even the Louvre Abu Dhabi.
Today, Luc Bellier has chosen to be in République in a more intimate setting and continues his career as an expert while organising exhibitions of artworks he has collected with passion since his beginnings.
