Galerie Florence de Voldère
Old Master Paintings
Galerie Florence de Voldere is renown for dealing exclusively in Flemish Old Master Paintings of the 16th and 17th centuries for two generations since 1965. Located in the heart of Paris at 34 avenue Matignon, its owner is Florence de Voldère, a key figure in the art world. She is noted for her discoveries and choices of great works by old master painters, for the quality of her personal collection of contemporary art, and for the influential artistic salons and exhibitions held at her home in Paris. Florence de Voldere has also distinguished herself in academia thanks to her conferences and publications, among them a survey of 16th and 17th century Flemish Art, which has received the highest honors by the Academie Francaise in 2011. Florence de Voldere is credited with the realization that Erasmus and Bruegel were the ideological leaders of the Northern Renaissance, which spread humanist ideas across Northern Europe.
