de Sarthe was founded in 1977 in Paris, later establishing galleries in America and most recently in Hong Kong and Beijing. de Sarthe represents and exhibits a diverse spectrum of international artists, with a focus on presenting the highest quality contemporary art and historically significant programming. Since its move to Hong Kong in 2010, the gallery has continued to host groundbreaking shows for artists like Auguste Rodin, Hans Hartung, Chu Teh-Chun, Zao Wou-Ki, Robert Rauschenberg, Chen Zhen and Bernar Venet. The gallery has also exhibited pioneering group shows such as gutai and the Pioneers of Chinese Modern Paintings in Paris. In 2017, the gallery opened a 10,000 square foot space in Hong Kong’s art district, Wong Chuk Hang, to properly honor masterpiece art works and expand its program of contemporary artists from Asia. Before its forced eviction in the summer of 2018, de Sarthe occupied an 8,000 square foot space in Caochangdi, a renowned art district in Beijing. There the gallery took an important role exhibiting a wide range of artists that lead the emerging art scene. This spirit continues in the Hong Kong space, where 70% of the exhibitions are dedicated to showing contemporary art from Asia. The gallery's roster of contemporary artists includes Double Fly Art Center, Liang Ban, Lin Jingjing, Andrew Luk, Mak Ying Tung 2, Ma Sibo, Wang Xin, and Xin Yunpeng.Read More
