About Morateur Gallery
Morateur Gallery French furniture for Investors & Collectors. In 1992, renowned art critic Raphael Valensi discovered Philippe Morateur and wrote about him for Revenu Francais (a magazine dedicated to the stock market and investments). In his article, Valensi applauded Morateur for his unique eye in choosing art and antique items that were sound financial investments. Over 20 years later, Christie’s auction house set a record that echoed Valensi’s words. A long-time client of Morateur, and the owner of a museum, sold a rug at a record price for that artist: $237,433.00, a 1930’s Art Deco design by Fernand Leger. More than two times than the initial investment price with Morateur twelve years before. Specializing in French Art Deco and rare XXth century furniture and decorative arts, Philippe Morateur brings over 25 years of his expertise in France to the heart of Los Angeles. Considered an international Art Deco expert, Morateur has lent his expertise to auction houses, advised museums on their collections, and participated in prestigious Antique and Art shows. Morateur Gallery carries only authentic, original pieces. The inventory includes some of the most famous artists of the era: ADNET - BAGUES - COLIN - DA SILVA BRUHNS - DUBREUIL - FOUJITA - FRANK - GAROUSTE & BONETTI - GIACOMETTI - GUEDEN - HAGENAUER - HERMES - JANSEN - LALIQUE - LELEU - NOLL - OLD – QUINET - PASCAUD - PICASSO - PONTI - POILLERAT - PRINTZ - PROUVE - PUIFORCAT - RATEAU - ROYERE - RUHLMANN - SABINO ...
