Catalogue Note

JEAN ROYERE
FROM BEYROUTH TO SAO-PAULO

Astute businessman and traveller, Jean Royère opened a few branches in the Middle East and South America.
In 1946 Jean Royère chose Egypt and its capital, Cairo, to open his first gallery, the city where he received his first commission in 1938. In 1947, with the assistance of the architect Nadim Majdalani, he opened his second gallery in Beirut, Lebanon, eventually opening his third and final gallery in Iran in 1958. Prior to this, in 1955, Royère moved to South America, opening a gallery in Lima, Peru the same year with another in São Paulo, Brazil opening two years later in 1957.

Internationally, Royère was able to seduce his clients. He personally supervised all of his projects, both public and private. This professional conscientiousness, combined with his perfectly mastered world of fantasy, Royère was one of the most brilliant designers of the 20th century.
