The Galerie Berès, facing the south west wing of the Louvre which stands across the river, was founded by Huguette Berès in 1951 and is now run by Anisabelle Berès, her daughter. Its twin focus has been, from Day One, on the graphic arts from the Far East and the avant-garde movements in 19th century France.
Major monographic shows of Japanese print making staged over the years include Utamaro, which travelled from Paris to London in 1980. The catalogue is widely held to be the reference book on the subject. Other exhibitions focused on Hiroshige, Hokusai and Sharaku. The latter, a historical event, included half of Sharaku’s known oeuvre and was internationally acclaimed. The Galerie Berès introduced the art of Ukiyo-e to a whole generation of West European and North American art lovers ...

LE FIGARO - january 2007

THE UNKNOWN SONS OF THE CUBISM by Valérie Duponchelle
Valérie Duponchelle reminds us of the two important exhibitions organized in 2002 and 2004, namely "Les peintres-graveurs 1890-1900" and "Henri Laurens", to lead to the cubists, about whom she speaks with "greediness". She points out the four pages published in Art + Auction in december 2006, and quotes the remarks of Anisabelle Berès on the worldwide spread of the cubism. Finally, she reveals that Mrs. Berès prefers the black and white works on paper, as the worthy heiress of her father, Pierre Berès, the famous bookseller, and of her mother, Huguette, who founded the gallery. The article is illustrated by a Kupka pastel.

INTERNATIONAL HERALD TRIBUNE - november 2006

DISCOVERING THE MANY FACETS OF CUBISM  by Souren Melikian
Souren Melikian points out the fact we do not know much on this period, which turned to be so rich and abounding. Many of the artists exhibited are quoted, as Adrian-Nilsson, Serge Férat, Emile Filla, Albert Gleizes, Louis Marcoussis. Then, he speaks about artists in margin of cubism ; as Larionov, who spread the "rayonnism" movement in Russia, and considering our painting as on of the gems of the exhibition. The east-european artists like Csaky, Lipchitz and Archipenko, are those, according to Melikian, who created the masterpieces of the cubist sculpture, expressing an emotional feeling, which does not exist in the rational cubism born in Paris. All those european artists contributed widely to the cubism. The show succeeds in pointing out their major role.
