Yvon Lambert

Yvon Lambert introduced to Paris new art movements, from Pop art and Minimalism, to Conceptual and Land art, and a whole generation of American artists, including Carl Andre, Lawrence Weiner, and Cy Twombly. For over 45 years until he closed his gallery in
2014, Lambert was a cornerstone of the Paris art scene. In 2002 he opened a bookshop adjacent to his gallery, asserting his commitment to books and publishing and to continuing to discover and champion “the best of what’s new”.
