Daniel Blaise Thorens Galerie
Aeschenvorstadt 15 | Basel | Art Region: Basel - Oberrhein
Our company was incorporated in 1976 by Dr. h.c. Daniel Blaise Thorens, who is still the sole owner. The gallery started with important projects and exhibited works by famous swiss artists as Cuno Amiet, Albert Anker, Giovanni Giacometti, Ferdinand Hodler and Alfred Heinrich Pellegrini. Works by world famous artists such as Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, Kees van Dongen, Edvard Munch, Alexey Jawlensky, André Dunoyer de Segonzac, Maurice Utrillo and Pablo Picasso were also exhibited by our gallery.
In 1982 Dr. h.c. Daniel Blaise Thorens met his future wife, Finnish born Riitta H. Thorens-Hietanen. She came from Finland to Basel to study art history at the University of Basel, where she graduated with an essay on “Le Corbusier as a painter”. In 1987 our gallery began to purchase original works by Le Corbusier and thereafter many exhibitions all over the world contained works by Le Corbusier owned by our gallery. We can claim, without any exaggeration, to have become one of the principal galleries for Le Corbusier’s works, underlined by the fact that we have sold more than 1800 works by Le Corbusier since 1987.
