6 -15 June 2019.

The collaboration between Mattia Bonetti and Francis Cat-Berro began 30 years ago.
Cat-Berro was first cabinetmaker for BOnetti. Then, he rapidly produced limited editions of conntemporary pieces designed exclusively for the Cat-Berro Gallery in Paris, at 25, rue Guénégaud, from 2006 till now.
Four exclusive collections designed for Cat-Berro followed one another. This one, entitled Tutto Oro, Mattia Bonetti, the alchemist, is thus the fifth.
Some pieces from the "Tutti Frutti" collection, such as the round table or the Jelly coffee table, are adorned with gold, yellow, white or Moon gold leaves.
The other pieces of the collection combine sanded and gilded acacia wood encased in Plexiglas or this incredible coffee table carved in a 140-year-old slice of sequoia.
As usual, the alchemist Mattia BOnetti combines nature and sophistication with happiness.
From June 6 to 14 . To discover at the Cat-Berro Gallery, 25, rue Guénégaud.

PUCCI DE ROSSI. 1947- 2013


FROM JUNE 8th to JULY 13rd 2017

In 1988, I met Pucci on the occasion of an exhibition where he was presenting – to use a modern expression – « customized » household objects : that is way off their original models. It was a shock for me, as it was not a piece of furniture anymore, its original use was completely topsy- turvy. All the signs of Pucci’s uniqueness were there : humour, discrepency, infringement, concept : the artist’s own touch.
Pucci was a doer. Behind the glass of his Paris studio, one wondered what he was handcrafting.
Pucci was secretive, volubile, attentive, finicky. He wore elaborate headgears. He was Italian, spoke French, using carefully chosen expressions and cooked pastas beautifully !
He died three years ago and we miss him.

In this exhibition will be presented Editions Cat-Berro’s pieces as well as previous works lent by collectors and the impressive Vase Medici edited by the Sèvres Manufacture.

Véronique Sainten & Francis Cat Berro (Cat-Berro Gallery - Paris) and La Cage de l’Ombre Forte invite you at the Opening of the exhibition on Thursday 12 May at 6.30 pm.

Yves Carreau (1947-2014)
" To make images means to give something to see, to show as if pointing out at a particular thing. With this sign of the hand, it should not be forgotten that pointing out a finger at someone, means folding up at least three towards oneself. "

Throughout his life, Yves Carreau was passionate about all matters related to the image. Abstract to figurative signs, issues of black and white as well as of colors, from miniature to large size, single items to multi ... He was fascinated by all these subjects. However, since the 60s, his work has been essentially linked to the language of drawing and printmaking techniques.
Yves Carreau died in November 2014. He was our friend.
By inviting La Cage de l’Ombre Forte (which is in charge of his work) to exhibit a selection of prints and photographs of his studio, we wish to pay tribute to the artist.

Today, Cat-Berro produces designers’ works exhibited exclusively in Véronique Sainten ’s and Francis Cat-Berro’s gallery, 25 rue Guénégaud, in the heart of St Germain, in Paris.
Unique pieces or in limited numbered series, they are in line with the great tradition of French Decorative Arts, together with signs of modernity.
