Daniel Templon is a French contemporary art dealer born in 1945. In 1966, he founded his first contemporary art gallery in Paris. In 1972, he co-founded the bilingual contemporary art magazine art press with art critic and erotic biographer Catherine Millet.


Biography[edit]

Templon played a key role to introduce in France international artists like Jean-Michel Basquiat (first show in 1987), Ellsworth Kelly, Keith Haring, Willem de Kooning, Sandro Chia, Francesco Clemente, Jörg Immendorff, Roy Lichtenstein, Wolf Vostell, Helmut Newton, Richard Serra (first show in 1977) and Andy Warhol among many others.

He started his first gallery at the age of 21 and worked with French avant-garde artists like Christian Boltanski, neo-dadaist Ben or abstract painters like Martin Barré . He also started working with a few foreigners. Carl Andre, Donald Judd, Dan Flavin and Sol LeWitt are among them. He was a close friend and business partner of famous art dealer Leo Castelli.

Daniel Templon soon became a permanent fixture of the French art establishment adding Arman, Daniel Buren, and Jean-Marc Bustamante to the community of artists he represents- his gallery (see Art Museum, notable galleries list) moved close to the Pompidou Center, 30, rue Beaubourg. Today he represents around 40 artists among them alphabetically Franz Ackermann, Larry Bell, Ben, Anthony Caro, Jim Dine, Jan Fabre, Gérard Garouste, Raymond Hains, Jitish Kallat, David LaChapelle, Jonathan Meese, Ivan Navarro, Joel Shapiro, Chiharu Shiota, Frank Stella, support-surface leader Claude Viallat and young afro-american artist Kehinde Wiley.

The gallery has been participating in the most prestigious artfairs including FIAC since 1974 and ARTBASEL since 1978.
