French & Company
Nineteenth and Twentieth Century Paintings; Old Master Paintings
French & Company was founded in the mid-19th century and was active supplying American robber barons - and the museums they founded - with decorative arts, sculpture and tapestries. In 1968, Martin Zimet, a former Wall Street banker and oilman, bought the firm. Throughout the 1970’s he was J. Paul Getty’s principal art agent. Martin’s son Henry joined the firm in 1981. Over the past decades many European and American museums have been clients. We exhibit at the Tefaf fairs in Maastricht and New York.
