Jacques Chalom des Cordes
Paintings and Drawings - closing 28th January 2016
It gives me great pleasure to present this first exhibition of paintings by Jacques des Cordes in London, not least because this is the 50th year of the Sladmore Gallery, and Jacques was with my parents at the outset.
It was Jacques who first opened their eyes to the work of Rembrandt Bugatti (1884 -1916) when he mounted a major exhibition of his sculpture at the Parisian gallery owned by his father, Samy Chalom, in 1967. Later this year we will be mounting a major centenary exhibition of Bugatti’s sculpture, both here in London and also in New York.
Forthcoming Events & Exhibitions
Rembrandt Bugatti - Book Launch and Exhibition
After two reprints my 2004 monograph on Rembrandt Bugatti (1884-1916) is once again out of print. In this centenary year it felt appropriate to update the text and refresh some of the photographs, adding a few extra ones as well. We are pleased to announce this new updated edition and to coincide with it's launch we will be showing a selection of his sculpture here in our Jermyn Street gallery.
Bronze Sculpture of Les Animaliers 1900-1950 - Book Launch and Exhibition
