Blondeau & Cie, Geneva
After 20 years’ experience in the international auction world in Paris, New York and Los Angeles, in 1987 Marc Blondeau resigned as chairman of Sotheby's France to open the first international consultancy working in the field of fine art focusing on painting, drawing and sculpture by major artists from 1820 till the present day.
Philippe Davet, who worked with him as director for the last 10 years, became partner in 2013.
Blondeau & Cie is based in Geneva, in a converted early 20th century factory building at 5 rue de la Muse, in the heart of the lively “Quartier des Bains”.
Through our knowledge, experience and networks in the art market, we are able to confidentially offer works of art (mainly from private sources) to collectors and institutions, while our position as independent consultants allows us to guide and assist our clientele in acquisitions at auction or from major international galleries.
We also offer services and assistance relating to the management of collections, such as exhibition loans, shipping, storage and insurance.
Our reference library of 15,000 titles, including catalogues raisonnés, monographs, exhibition catalogues and auction catalogues enables us to provide in-depth cataloguing research for works consigned to or purchased through us. In 2009 we published the A.C.I. Art Catalogue Index (distributed by JRP-Ringier, ISBN 978-3-905829-53-2).
At our gallery "5 rue de la Muse", we present exhibitions of contemporary and emerging art in solo and group shows. Since 2003, we have exhibited the works of artists such as Adel Abdessemed, Francis Bacon, John Baldessari, Martin Bigum, Rhona Bitner, Dike Blair, Mel Bochner, Alex Brown, Dan McCarthy, Maurizio Cattelan, Giorgio de Chirico, Michael Cline, Jean Dubuffet, Lucien Freud, General Idea, Fabrice Gygi, Mamie Holst, Mike Kelley, Ed Kienholz, Martin Kippenberger, Kiki Lamers, Louise Lawler, Justin Lieberman, Robert Longo, Sarah Lucas, Albert Oehlen, Raymond Pettibon, Jerry Phillips, Richard Prince, Charles Ray, Ry Rocklen, Peter Saul, Jenny Saville, Jim Shaw, Cindy Sherman, Wolfgang Tillmans, Jean-Luc Verna, Andy Warhol, and Alessandro Twombly.
Over the years, we have undertaken private transactions for major works by artists such as:
19th century & Impressionism:
Cézanne, Corot, Courbet, Degas, Delacroix, Gauguin, Géricault, Ingres, Manet, Monet, Rodin, Seurat, Signac, Toulouse-Lautrec, Van Gogh …
Arp, Balthus, Brancusi, Braque, Derain, Duchamp, Ernst, Giacometti, Gris, Man Ray, Matisse, Mirò, Mondrian, Picasso, Tanguy …
Post-War & Contemporary Art:
André, Bacon, Chillida, Flavin, Freud, Judd, Kippenberger, Klein, Kline, de Kooning, Koons, Lewitt, Martin, Nauman, Newman, Pollock, Prince, Rauschenberg, Rothko, Ryman, Serra, de Staël, Tinguely, Warhol …
Through our longstanding relationship with Etienne Bréton (Paris), we can provide a similar service covering works from the 14th to the 19th century. Etienne Bréton has helped many important French and international collectors to acquire major old masters and has generated important acquisitions for French, European and North American institutions, including the Louvre, Musée d'Orsay, the National Gallery of Washington, the Getty, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Clarke Institute, Williamstown and the Musée d’Art et d’Histoire, Geneva, by negotiating sales of major pictures by Courbet, Coypel, David, Delacroix, Girodet, Goya, Liotard, Natoire, Tiepolo, Tissot and Vernet amongst others.
