After founding de Sarthe in Paris in 1977, followed by spaces in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Hong Kong, French-American gallerist Pascal de Sarthe was joined in 2008 by his son Vincent, who spearheaded the gallery’s expansion to Beijing and then to Scottsdale, Arizona, in 2022.

Leo Castelli, who cut his teeth as an insurance broker then banker in Paris, is considered to have invented the modern gallery system, but, as the Parisian gallerist Mathieu Capela points out, Castelli also operated much like an emerging dealer – working out of small spaces, recruiting recent graduates, and collaborating with other galleries including the French dealer Daniel Templon.

Since 1957, when Castelli founded his own gallery in his family apartment in New York, the art world has gone from cottage industry to multi-billion-dollar business. Nonetheless, for many gallerists starting out today, Castelli’s core principle of establishing tight-knit relationships with artists still stands. ‘No one wants to be an eternal gold digger, just finding artists and then losing them,’ says Capela, who co-founded his gallery cadet capela with Julien Cadet in 2018. ‘Our aim is to support our artists in their journeys for as long as we can.’
