Marian Read & Andreas Giannakis
Nestled in Montreal’s Plateau district, Galerie d’Avignon was
founded in 1998 by Andreas Giannakis and Marian Read. The
Gallery is known for its quality contemporary art, representing
both emerging and leading artists from Canada and abroad.
With 35 years experience in the art market they take great pride
in sharing their knowledge and guiding their clients in the
selection process for their personal and corporate space.
The Gallery’s mission was inspired by one of Canada’s great
expressionist painters Fritz Brandtner (1896 – 1969).
In his personal diary (c1950’s) Fritz Brandtner wrote;
The true work of art is not only looked at it really looks back. It
not only changes depending on who looks at it, but it also has
the capacity to change the one who looks at it. There is no right
or wrong; it is a mirror, it reflects. It is the relation of man to
man and of man to his environment. It must take from the one
who looks some of his life with which to increase its own. It is
magical and it is taboo. It is lover and beloved. So, once born, it
walks by itself, it has its own life, its own destiny.
1896 - 1969
