Jean-Jacques Dutko has been at the forefront of Paris’ art community since the 1980s and is considered a pioneer in the field of Art Deco. After falling in love with a desk by Pierre Chareau, owned by Professor Albert Moulonguet, and becoming fascinated with the period’s rich history, Dutko rediscovered a number of great names from the movement. He can be credited with personally resurrecting the furniture of Eugène Printz, having long championed his inventive style and co-authored a book on his works. He went on to establish two galleries in Paris devoted to the genre, passionately seeking out new works to exhibit.
In recent years, Dutko has also turned his discerning eye to contemporary works, forging relationships with contemporary artists and designers, and frequently commissioning limited edition works to complement his Art Deco findings.
