Gabriela and Mathieu Sismann’s passion for Old Master Sculpture led them to found their gallery in 1994 in Paris. Since then, the gallery has gained international renown as the only exhibition space devoted to a whole spectrum of European sculpture dating from the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, the Classical and Baroque periods and the 18th century. Driven by their instinct for fine pieces and their fascination with the spiritual aspect of the creative process, their acquisitions reflect a quest for rare, unknown or forgotten works of art. Most of their works are totally unknown to the art market and constitute real artistic discoveries. All are fully attributed. Galerie Sismann organizes exhibitions in its Parisian space while participating in international exhibitions. It has contributed to the expansion of important private collections and those of prestigious institutions around the world. The American-born art historian Gabriela Sismann completed two degrees in Art History, specializing in the Renaissance period. Mathieu Sismann, whose academic background includes law and art history, is an expert in European sculpture and works of art (CNES). In this capacity, he is often involved in the vetting process that precedes international exhibitions. Each autumn, they publish a catalogue presenting their major discoveries, a moment looked forward to by specialists in - and enlightened amateurs of - European sculpture.
