Maria Lund

 Galerie Maria Lund opened its doors in 1999. During its first years the gallery presented mainly Nordic artists: the aim was to make the very rich and dynamic contemporary Nordic art scene more visible in France. The desire to make this cultural milieu more known motivated this artistic choice. For the last few years however the gallery has enlarged its selection to include artists from other horizons whilst also remaining loyal to its artistic line following two directions: narrative figuration and abstraction privileging an attachment to matter.

The choice of artists is above all based on quality criteria and the desire to present different approaches, preoccupations, a diversity of subjects as well as a vast array of media. These criteria have led to a program bringing together both young and established artists.

Galerie Maria Lund aims to present and promote art of the highest level. Guaranteeing its clients advice and quality service based on ethical business criteria.

The Galerie Maria Lund looks after the sale of artworks, the execution of commissions, the installation and hanging of exhibitions for private clients, the public sector and businesses. Equally, the gallery publishes catalogs, broadcasts films and organizes gatherings/conferences/meetings about art.

The Galerie Maria Lund is a member of the Comité des Galeries d’Art. Maria Lund is the gallery director.
