Pinacothèque de Paris

The Pinacothèque de Paris was an art gallery in Paris, France,[1] with exhibition space for temporary exhibitions of artworks.[2] It was owned and run by Modigliani enthusiast Marc Restellini.[3] It closed in February 2016 after going into receivership in November 2015.[4]

The art gallery opened on 15 June 2007 at 28, Place de la Madeleine in the 8th arrondissement of Paris, France. It was previously at 30, Rue de Paradis in the 10th arrondissement, where an exhibition of works by Picasso was held in Autumn 2003. The gallery is funded from private sources and organizes exhibitions. There is no permanent collection of artworks.

The architect of the building was Lawrence Guinamard-Casati. It was owned by Credit Agricole and includes about 2,000 square metres (22,000 sq ft) on three levels: a basement, a ground floor, and first floor.[5]

Singapore project[edit]

In 2013, the Singapore government announced the opening of Singapore Pinacothèque de Paris, a dependence of the museum that would bring Old Masters and Modern art exhibitions to the city. The new museum was planned to be located in a “pop-up” space, during renovations to its eventual home, the historic Fort Canning building in the arts district.[6] The museum opened in May 2015 and closed in April the next year, citing "weaker than expected visitorship and other business and financial challenges".[7][8]
