Libretis

Paris

Libretis is the art gallery 2.0, lithographs, drawings, sketches, prints and rare books. It offers rare works carefully unearthed by its founder Paul Ferloni. At 31 years old, Paul grew up in a family of publishers, so it is only natural that he cultivated a love for books. For him, the edition, the nature of the work, the paper, the context constitute a homogeneous whole, which makes a book an art object in its own right. After studying art history at the Ecole du Louvre in Paris, and a spell in a contemporary art gallery and auction house, he decided to launch Libretis. Initially specialising in rare books, the virtual gallery grew and added works to its catalogue. From Jean Paul Sartre to Picasso, Soulage, Braque, Matisse, Hartung or Kees Van Dongen to Henri Michaux, the range of Libretis’ propositions is as wide as its price range.
