Imperial Art

19th Century French paintings and art objects


Located in the heart of Paris, since 2016, The Imperial Art Gallery founded by Tarik Bougherira advises museum enthusiasts and professionals to build and enrich their collection(s) with a wide range of specialties: paintings, drawings, sculptures, furniture, goldsmithing and art porcelain, historical souvenirs, covering the periods of the eighteenth and nineteenth century, with a predilection for the prosperous period of the Napoleonic era. Through these areas, Imperial Art strives to select art objects for their rarity, authenticity, and state of conservation as well as for the finesse and quality of execution, seeking in their excellence, artists who have demonstrated their talents, combining at the same time beauty, sensitivity, and the power of evocation of a glorious past.

The major French public institutions, for example the Musée d'Orsay, the Musée Napoléon 1er of the Château de Fontainebleau, the Paoli Museum in Corsica, the National Museum of the Castles of Malmaison and Bois-Préau, the Musée de l'Armée, the Musée de la Gendarmerie in Melun or the museums of Vendée, trust us to participate in the enrichment of their collections as well as many collectors. Our expertise and curiosity allow the return of works of museum quality acquired in private collections, often foreign, on the French soil to be able, after a thorough research work, to offer them again on the market. Our hope is to generate new impulses of interest among collectors and museum professionals with the desire for a reappropriation of the imperial era, complex and exciting.
