What can be better for professional art handlers than visiting new galleries featuring amazing collections of exceptional art? Doing it at the international art show, of course! This year was marked by many important events for our U.S. art shipping company, and one of the most memorable was our fantastic trip to Art Basel in Switzerland. Not only did Fine Art Shippers ship valuable art pieces for our clients, but we also spent much time building new relationships with some of the world’s best galleries and museums. We wrote about many of them in our previous blog posts but now want to tell you about Galerie Lelong & Co., another great gallery our U.S. art shipping team was lucky to visit at the Art Basel show!
Galerie Lelong & Co.
Galerie Lelong & Co. is a reputable art gallery, with beautiful spaces in Paris and New York City, which was founded by Daniel Lelong, Jean Fremon, and Jacques Dupin in 1981. These days, it represents many contemporary artists from the United States, Europe, Latin America, Australia, and Asia, as well as some of the most important estates, including the Estate of Ana Mendieta and the Estate of Helio Oiticica. Besides, it features an impressive selection of works by such prominent artists as Yoko Ono, Kate Shepherd, and Mildred Thompson.
It was indeed a great experience for our U.S. art shipping company to visit Galerie Lelong & Co. at Art Basel this June! We are sure to do it again in New York!
