With the exhibition “Modernity in progress” Galerie Anne-Sophie Duval collaborated with Galerie Ulrich Fiedler from Berlin during the Biennale 2010 in Paris to pay tribute to the pioneer artists of modernist design.
Alongside work by major designers such as Breuer, Gray, Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe or Rietveld, convinced of the need to modernize design and furniture, pieces from artists such as Burkhalter, Baugniet, Damon, Felix Aublet or Adrienne Gorska will provide a broader insight on this period.
Combining aesthetic creation and emergence of new materials, they can be seen precursors of contemporary design.
Galerie Anne-Sophie Duval was at the prominent Design Miami/Basel global design forum for the first time, as a gallery specialising in Art Deco.
In keeping with its tradition and reputation, Galerie Anne-Sophie Duval was presenting work by Jean-Michel Frank, Pierre Chareau, Alberto Giacometti, Paul Dupré-Lafon, Marc du Plantier, Boris Lacroix and other artists from the 1930s who have become classics without losing any of their irresistible modern appeal.

Many Ceramic enthusiasts may already know Guidette Carbonell’s « luminous birds », Elisabeth Joulia’s sandstones, Denyse Gatard’s smooth and airy forms, Jacqueline Lerat’s gracious figurines, the mechanical inspiration in Mado Jolain’s forms, Valentine Schlegel’s sensual shapes, the subtle (fine ?) reference to archétypes of Suzanne Ramié’s pieces, or event the primitive eloquence of Véra Szekely’s work.
