Galerie Chastel-Maréchal focuses on the promotion and rediscovery of important twentieth-century French designers, particularly those working between 1930 and 1960. The range of artists represented provides a cogent overview of this period and many of the works shown are extremely rare and have never been seen on the art market.
Aline Chastel, expert of the Syndicat Français des Experts Professionnels and member of the Syndicat National des Antiquaires, is exhibiting a range of pieces by artists who also worked as interior designers during the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s. These include: the unusual creator Line Vautrin, who became famous in the 1950s for her incredible mirrors; Serge Roche, known for his baroque-inspired creations; and Jean Royère, Paul Dupré-Lafon, Alexandre Noll, Marc Du Plantier, Gabriella Crespi and Yonel Lebovici.
The gallery’s exhibitions include/ 1998 Miroirs et Objets, Line Vautrin; 2000 Classique et Baroqu, André Arbus, Jean-Charles Moreux, Jacques Quinet; 2002 Verre et Miroir, Jacques Adnet, René Coulon, Serge Roche, Max Ingrand; 2004 Miroirs Line Vautrin, monograph by Patrick Mauriès and Galerie Chastel-Maréchal; 2005 Deux ensembles exceptionnels, 1936 et 1959, Jean Royère; 2006 Un Univers Baroque, Serge Roche, monograph by Patrick Mauriès and Galerie Chastel-Maréchal; 2008 Jacques Quinet, catalogue; 2011 Lighter than Air, Marianna Kennedy; 2012 Baroque et Surréalisme, Jean-Charles Moreux, catalogue; 2014 Yonel Lebovici.
