Tornabuoni Art in Paris presents the work of Fontana, Castellani, Manzoni, Dorazio, Bonalumi, Dadamaino and Boetti together with the major protagonists of the Italian Novecento such as De Chirico, Morandi, Balla, Severeni and Sironi.

The gallery also proposes works of essential artists of the 20th Century such as Picasso, Mirò, Kandinsky, Hartung, Poliakoff, Dubuffet, Lam, Matta, Christo, Wesselmann, Warhol and Basquiat.

Since inaugurating its Parisian space in 2009 with an exhibition dedicated to Lucio Fontana, Tornabuoni Art has organized numerous monographic exhibitions, always in close consultation with the artists or the foundations that represent them. The gallery has shown the works of Alighiero Boetti (2010), Arnaldo Pomodoro (2011), Enrico Castellani (2011), Mimmo Rotella (2012), Giuseppe Capogrossi (2013), Dadamaino (2013) and in 2014 presented an exceptional exhibition Lucio Fontana, rediscovery of a masterpiece in parallel with the retrospective at the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, the first retrospective in France of Turi Simeti and most recently retrospectives of Alberto Biasi (2015), Giuseppe Chiari (2015), Paolo Scheggi (2015) and Piero Dorazio (2016). Each solo show is put together through close collaboration with the artist or the artist's foundation and are accompanied by an exhibition catalogue.

Besides these solo shows, the gallery also presents group shows such as The Monochrome Under Pressure (2012), Bianco Italia (2013), Between Sign and Writing: a path through Italian art (2014), "Ceci n'est pas une idée" (2015) or “Roma Pop” (2016). Brought together by different curators who are given carte blanche, each show offering a unique approach to the gallery’s collection. The gallery has added a touch of contemporary art to the family tradition and love for Italian art in particular with the artist Francesca Pasquali.

Tornabuoni Art participates in major French art fairs such as the FIAC and the Biennale des Antiquaires in Paris but is also present at big international events such as TEFAF in Maastricht, Art Basel Basel, Art Basel Miami Beach, Art Basel Hong Kong, Artefiera in Bologna and Frieze Masters in London.

In October 2015, the gallery opened a new exhibition space on 46 Albemarle Street in the area of Mayfair, London, an important meeting point for the European and American art market.

Many museums have come to the gallery for expertise and guidance and with its experience and thorough knowledge of the work of the artists it represents, the gallery has established itself as advisor for both private and public collections.
