The Portuondo Gallery, established in Paris since 2004, specializes in decorative art from the second half of the 20th century, with a focus on pieces from the 1950s and 1970s. It is led by the Spanish couple Horacio and Julia Portuondo. Horacio comes from a long line of antique dealers and Julia excels as a jewelry designer.
Their journey began in 2004 at the Marché Serpette in Paris, the world's largest antique market. Over two decades of passionate and creative work, the gallery expanded its presence with a second location at Carré Rive Gauche, 6 rue de Lille, located between the Musée d'Orsay and the Beaux-Arts de Paris.
The gallery's selection of works primarily focuses on French designers from the post-war modern era, such as Joseph André Motte, Roger Landault, and Jean-Claude Farhi. It also includes works from other European artists such as the Italian Gabriella Crespi. In addition, the gallery showcases contemporary designers in harmony with its main aesthetic, such as Clotilde Ancarani with her solid bronze pieces, Jean-Frédéric Bourdier with marble creations, and Julia Muñoz, a jewelry designer specializing in gilded bronze.
