The opening of the Michel Descours gallery of paintings and drawings in December 2009 was the culmination of a passionate thirty-five-year career. With his reputation as a specialist in antique furniture and objets d’art, Michel Descours’ ambition was to create a space in Lyon devoted exclusively to the very best in the field of fine arts. While the gallery is now considered a leading champion of the Lyon school, Michel Descours’ interests extend far beyond that, and the gallery offers both its private and institutional clients a wide selection of European paintings and drawings from the 16th to the 20th centuries. The enthusiasm of Michel Descours and his team is evident, as they advise collectors and regularly host events, working closely with museums on exhibitions.
