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).
