De Jonckheere was founded in 1976 in Brussels, a gallery specialising in the study and sale of Flemish paintings from the 15th to 17th centuries. In 1983, it moved to Paris. Its various collections are presented to the most demanding amateurs and in particular during participation in the main antique art fairs such as the TEFAF in Maastricht and New York, Masterpiece and Frieze Masters in London. Since April 2011, the gallery has made its space in the heart of Geneva's historic district the centre of its activity. From now on and since the 2012 edition of the Biennale des Antiquaires de Paris, a staging of both ancient and modern works marks the two sides of his skills.
