150 years of the Galerie Kraemer,

through the arts and ages

The reputation of the Kraemer Gallery is also made by a multitude of anecdotes making its history.

Jayne Wrightsman,

major patron of the Metropolitan Museum of Art of New York

Jayne Wrightsman, always elegant and refined, regularly visited us in our private mansion each time she came to Paris, always with great kindness, to expand her collection.

The MET received the fleuron of its 18th-century furniture collections from Charles and Jayne Wrightsman.
In the photo on the right side, a magnificent vase mounted as a lamp. The pair is now exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

They were acquired from us by Consuelo Vanderbilt Balsan, then by the Wrightsman couple before joining the collections of this prestigious institution.

Jayne Wrightsman was always a loyal customer of our Gallery, until her passing in 2019.
