Antoine Laurentin practises as gallery owner since 1991. The gallery in Paris situated in 23 quai Voltaire, gave birth in 2013 to the second space located street Ernest Allard in the district of Sablon in Brussels.
Since its opening, the gallery Laurentin always put in parallel exhibitions of modern art with the présentation of contemporary artists. The participation with important fairs, such TEAFAF in Maastricht, the Salon du Dessin in Paris and Art Brussels in Belgium gave an international visibility to the gallery.

    Alexander CALDER

    Biography : Born in 1898 in Philadelphia, Alexander Calder was the son of a well-known sculptor. From 1915 to 1919, he studied mechanical engineering at the Stevens Institute of Technology. His interest in drawing and sculpture came from his observations of machines and mechanical objects. In 1923, he enrolled at the Art Students League in New York. His passion for drawing led him to produce an important number of sketches, depicting people in the underground as well as the Barnum and Bailey Circus. From these sketches he created his famous ‘Cirque Calder’, a wire sculpture representing a miniature circus, which enabled him to be recognised and become close to the Parisian avant-garde. In 1930, he met Mondrian, who had a decisive impact on his work: Calder stopped producing naturalist compositions in order to embrace abstract art (“du Mondrian qui bouge”). Calder’s sculptures, which Duchamp called “mobiles”, were designed with delicately balanced or suspended components that altogether created a dynamic harmony. He exhibited them for the first time in 1933. The same year, he established a studio in Roxbury, Connecticut. Since then, he spent his time between France and the United-States. In 1936, he was one of the few American artists to participate in the ‘Cubist and Abstract Art’ exhibition. As from 1943, he produced stationary sculptures called ‘stabiles’, which later took monumental proportions. Alongside his sculptures, Calder did not stop painting and drawing colourful and poetic compositions. He produced works in which primary colours contrasted with his usual black shapes. Detailed Description : In this gouache, Alexander Calder paints Russian flag opposite to a black spiral. This work of art is dedicated to Mrs Marteau, which means hammer in english. Tools which should take place in the Russian flag. Artist's Objects: Other Dealers:

    Sonia DELAUNAY

    Biography : Sonia Delaunay was born to Gradshik (Ukraine, Russia) in 1885. Sara Ilinitchna Stern, said Sonia Stern, is adopted by his uncle Henri Terk in 1890. She saw regularly the Schmidt-Reuter’s studio in Karlsruhe from 1903 till 1904, then the Academy of the Palette in Paris where she settled down in 1905. She painted then portraits and bare Fauves. Her first personal exhibition is organized in 1908. After a first marriage, she married the painter Robert Delaunay in 1910 and followed her husband on the roads towards abstraction. From 1913, the artist was interested in creating colored fabrics. The couple settled down in Madrid in 1914, then in Portugal in1915 (works on flamenco, tango, etc.), and came back in Paris five years later. Sonia Delaunay, from 1913 till 1935, dedicated herself essentially to applied arts (pillows, waistcoats, dresses, lampshade, etc.). Also, she made bindings, covers and illustrations of books, some being considered as masterpieces in the art of the illustrated book in the XXth century. She opened a decoration shop Casa Sonia and became a specialist in clothing art and in the influence of the painting on it. In the 30s, the couple joined the group Abstraction-Creation defending non representative art. The Exposition Internationale des Arts et Techniques (1937, Paris) was an opportunity for the upholders of Art Total to give a public dimension to Abstraction. The Delaunays took an active part in the adventure of street art, suported by the Front Populaire. Robert Delaunay died in 1941, and Sonia retreated to Grasse till the end of the war. In 1946, she was a co-founder of the Lounge of the New Realities and exhibited with the group Art Concret. The group Espace was also originated from her. Always faithful to pure color, excited by the law of the simultaneous contrasts, she made series, created mosaics, stained glasses, carpets and tapestries, conceived decorations and costumes for the theater, illustrated books.
