Review by Marisa Anne Bass
CrossRef DOI: 10.3202/

The history of art in early modern Europe would be unthinkable without Antwerp. And yet until quite recently, Antwerp was a place that nobody talked much about. Scholarship on the southern Netherlandish city (now part of Belgium) long remained the province of local historians, the indefatigable Floris Prims notable among them. And while first Pieter Paul Rubens and then Pieter Bruegel the Elder met with increasing art-historical interest following Belgium’s assertion of independence in 1830, a dogged nationalistic approach to their oeuvres meant that the city in which they lived and worked did not generate much attention in its own right. It was the artist as Flemish genius, and not the city as stimulus, that mattered.

La maison Goupil.
Galerie d’art internationale au XIXe siècle, by Agnès Penot

Between 1846 and 1884, one of the most successful French art dealers of its time, Goupil & Co, developed a marketing strategy that employed an international network of alliances to expand its sales of art – prints, paintings, drawings and sculptures. Their focus during that time was mainly on contemporary European Salon artists. Newly established offices in New York, London, The Hague, Berlin and Brussels were linked to the headquarters in Paris. For example, William Schaus and later Michael Knoedler concentrated on the American market while Vincent Van Gogh, an uncle of the painter, facilitated business relations with the Netherlands. The firm was a profitable business. Its many branches and its participation in most major international events, such as the Universal Expositions were an ever-renewable source of clients and artists. As a result, many international museums owned – and sometimes still own – at least one piece of artwork with a Goupil & Co provenance. This dissertation analyses the stock books that were used to record sales in Paris and which reveal themselves to be an invaluable source of the Nineteenth Century art market, especially as it relates to the history of taste and collecting.

Agnès Penot is an independent art historian and a specialist in 19th century French art, the art market, and provenance.

BOOK OUT NOW: Julie Verlaine, Daniel Templon : une histoire d’art contemporain, Flammarion 2016

BOOK OUT NOW: Julie Verlaine, Daniel Templon : une histoire d’art contemporain, Flammarion 2016. 413pp, 200 ill., 35,00 €.

French version below


When Daniel Templon opened his gallery in 1966, the art trade of the late 19th and early 20th centuries – defined by dealers such as Kahnweiler, Durand-Ruel and Vollard – had changed profoundly. New York and American art had arrived to make a big splash in the history of art. Daniel Templon is a pioneer of a new generation that seized on this expanding horizon to reinvent the profession of the gallerist. Thus, the trajectory of his gallery offers a breathtaking reflection not only of the history of art in the second half of the 20th century but also of the socio-cultural and economic changes in the world of contemporary art.

This book by Julie Verlaine is the result of a sustained historical investigation, exploring the rich archives and the abundance of printed documentation. It offers a detailed reconstruction of the gallery’s activities and takes stock of developments that have marked its existence and the contemporary international artistic landscape. The story of these fifty years is enriched by the gallery owner’s personal account of his meetings with Catherine Millet at the age of twenty and his discoveries of great contemporary artists such as César, Ben Vautier, Carl Andre, Frank Stella, Andy Warhol or Helmut Newton. It thus gives the keys to the story but also reflects the atypical route that made Templon a privileged witness of the artistic, economic and political transformations of the last fifty years. The book is divided into three parts that correspond to the three ages of the gallery: its birth (1966-1972), growth (1970-1980) and maturity (since 1990).
