Plan number 15
After collaborating for several years with the merchants Jacques Fischer, specialized in XIXth century’s art and Jean-Philippe Mariaud de Serres, specialized in archaeology, Antoine Tarantino opened his own gallery in June 2007. The place, located in the heart of New Athens, evokes the atmosphere of an Italian palace. It is suitable both for large format paintings and archaeological objects such as marble sculptures, Greek vases and intaglios. A room devoted to graphic arts allows the exhibition of a selection of Italian artists from the sixteenth to the eighteenth century. The Tarantino Gallery has had the opportunity to propose several thematic exhibitions, accompanied by scientific catalogs to promote the knowledge of classical archeology and Italian art.
