Influential gallerist and bookshop owner who's long helped to forge Parisians' art tastes
BOOKSELLER GALLERIST Publisher
Yvon Lambert introduced to Paris new art movements, from Pop art and Minimalism, to Conceptual and Land art, and a whole generation of American artists, including Carl Andre, Lawrence Weiner, and Cy Twombly. For over 45 years until he closed his gallery in 2014, Lambert was a cornerstone of the Paris art scene. In 2002 he opened a bookshop adjacent to his gallery, asserting his commitment to books and publishing and to continuing to discover and champion “the best of what’s new”.
