Founded in 1982 and initially dedicated to Modern Art, DUMONTEIL now focuses since 2021 exclusively on Contemporary Art and limited edition Contemporary Design.

Its activity is based around two distinct entities, DUMONTEIL Contemporary and DUMONTEIL Design, which share three exhibition spaces. Two are in Paris, at 8 rue d'Aboukir, 75002, and 38 rue de l'Université, 75007, while the third one is in Shanghai, at 199 Hengshan Road. 

The gallery organises over twenty solo exhibitions a year. The gallery's aim is to support artists and Estates d'Artiste in the development of their most ambitious projects and to promote them on the national and international scene. This is done in the gallery's various exhibition spaces, outside the walls in collaboration with public and private institutions, and at fairs such as WestBund Art & Design, Art 021, Art Paris, Asia Now, etc.

Going beyond its commercial ambitions, Galerie Dumonteil has always extended its influence by becoming involved in a variety of cultural sectors, providing its clients with the best possible advice on building up their collections, lending works to museum exhibitions and contributing to leading publications.

The gallery was created by Dothi and Pierre DUMONTEIL, and Dorian DUMONTEIL has been responsible for its future since 2021.

Galerie Dumonteil is also a member of the Professional Committee of the CPGA Art Galleries and of the Compagnie Nationale des Experts CNE.
Pierre & Dothi Dumonteil


With a joint diploma in private law and in art history awarded by both the University of Paris and Ecole du Louvre, Pierre Dumonteil, dedicated to the advocation, distribution and connoisseurship in the fields of modern and contemporary art, is a certificated auctioneer who has worked for Drouot, one of the largest and most prestigious auction houses in France.

Ultimately Mr. Dumonteil’s upbringing in Aubusson, a region in France notable for its tapestry industry, not only helped him develop a taste for art at an early age but also a passion for the collection and diffusion of artworks.

In 1982, Pierre co-founded with his wife Dothi their eponymous gallery, focussing on the promotion of Modern Art and the works of contemporary artists.

A registered art expert in sculpture and painting of the 20th and 21st century at CNE, Pierre advises the French government in juristic settlements of artworks as a special consul for the Obersavtoire du Marche de l’Art in France. Holding numerous awards and titles, both Pierre and Dothi are decorated by the French government as Chevaliers des Arts et des Lettres in recognition of their outstanding contribution to the artistic scene in France.
