ESPACE 4 GALLERY
Opened in 1996, Espace4 Gallery was exclusively devoted to Japanese art, specializing particularly in the arts of the Samurai.
Fifteen years later, Espace 4 maintains a prominent position to all lovers of this ancient art.
Laurence Souksi and Frantz Fray assumed direction of the gallery in 2005. Their arrival was a turning point in its history.
The areas of expertise and collections extend to all Asian arts and specifically to Chinese snuff bottles.
To satisfy all tastes, collectors and amateurs can now find in the gallery a wide choice of antiques coming from Japan, China and other Asian countries (Tibet, Korea, Vietnam …).
