Annick BouvattierAnnick Bouvattier was born in Nevers, France in the mid-sixties. Her father, a pediatrician and art lover, passed on to her from her early childhood his passion for painting. In 1982, after passing her school-leaving certificate with a science major, she broke away from the family tradition of studying medicine to enroll at the Berçot - Marie Rucki school of fashion where, for two years, she trained as a stylist. Her works were then presented in Paris and the Villa Medici in Rome and were praised by professionals and published in specialist magazines. However, she was more attracted by stage fashion than haute-couture and chose film and advertising. A stylist and costume-maker, she often works with Cinecitta in Rome. From her Italian experience, she has retained the deep, warm and sensual colors - sun-filled ochres, velvety reds, intense blues and deep greens. At the beginning of 1990, she decided to turn to painting exclusively. After two years of self-training, in 1992 she became the pupil of Pierre Ramel, who taught her the technique of using a knife to paint with oil, which she uses in smoothed out forms to achieve the effect of transparency. Annick Bouvattier is the painter of silences, of small, insignificant gestures performed every day, trivial moments, fleeting glances, unsaid words, speechless stories - but many collectors have already heard those silences.
Current Complete Collection by This Artist
Great Art, Great People to Deal With. I've been doing business with this gallery for fifteen years and have purchased 4 major works of art from them. I love the artists they represent, the quality of work they sell, and the stable employee base that represents the artists. I once had a problem with a frame that showed cracking after two years. They had the art picked up and delivered by professional packagers/transporters after replacing the frame with an even better one. Their level of salesmanship and follow-up customer care is outstanding. I never come to town without stopping in to enjoy some of the best contemporary art available in the French Quarter.
They feature several amazing artists whose work are exclusive to this network of galleries in the USA, including Denis Lebecq and Marc Clauzade. I recommend speaking with Bilal McGlothan or the owner, Scott Novick. Both are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. They also have the most beautiful custom frames you will find anywhere.
Beautiful and simple art gallery showcasing the work of immensely talented people.
What an awesome little gallery, with unique, amazing art and attentive service if you want to learn more about any of their artists. We purchased art by a french artist named Lebecq that is nothing short of spectacular.
Best of The Big Easy two years in row for a really good reason!

Sometimes we just drive in from Baton Rouge to see the Lebecq red painting – one day maybe one day.
I found this place after a Saint’s game when my friends ditched me, and the Gallery Director was so awesome I bought a DeVon painting and I love it still to this day. Bilal is amazing.
