Georges de Jonckheere
President of La Biennale Paris
A leading figure in the international art market and a recognized expert, Georges De Jonckheere began his career in Brussels in 1976, as an expert and dealer in 15th, 16th and 17th century Flemish Masters.
In 1983, he opened his gallery in Paris on Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré. In 2011, he opened a new space in Geneva’s historic district. Between 2017 and 2019, the gallery was also present in Monaco.
A Belgian national living in Switzerland, and previously a resident of Paris, this dedicated European, has served, among other positions, as President of the Palais des Beaux-Arts de Bruxelles (Servarts), where numerous international art fairs have been held.
A member of the Syndicat National des Antiquaires since 1978, Georges De Jonckheere quickly became a Member of the Board and later Treasurer, Secretary General and Vice President.
Since the opening of his gallery in Paris in the early 1980s, François Laffanour examines, exhibits and restores furniture designed by 20th century architects, a relatively unknown field until then.
François Laffanour first studied history at the Sorbonne before becoming a dealer at the Saint-Ouen Flea Market in 1975. In 1982, he opened Downtown, his gallery in Saint-Germain, where he has remained to this day.
Thanks to his eclectic taste and his unique vision, François Laffanour has become a major figure at international fairs and exhibitions. In 2016, he was elevated to the rank of Officier des Arts et des Lettres.

Pierre-Edouard de Souzy
Born in 1973, Pierre-Édouard de Souzy has been an art dealer since 1996.
Educated at IESA [Institut d’études supérieures des arts], he joined his father, a renowned antique dealer in old weapons and historical memorabilia at the time.
Established since 2001 on Place Beauvau, in Paris’s 8th arrondissement, he specializes in 20th century painting with a preference for postwar artists. He constantly modernizes the selection of works presented in his gallery by opening it up increasingly each year to the major artists of the 20th century.
An expert since 2010, he is member of the Syndicat National des Antiquaires in 2014 and administrator since the end of 2019.
A major figure in international antique fairs and biennales, Oscar Graf – son of the renowned interior designer François-Joseph Graf and grandson of an Haute Epoque antiques dealer – opened his first gallery in Paris at the age of 24.
Passionate about the political history of the late 19th and early 20th century, he began studying art history and developed a passion for British, French and American decorative arts and design, between 1870 and 1918.
His museum-quality pieces, always well documented, enable him to establish a strong and longstanding relationship with the major international collectors, museums and institutions.
