A 21-mile stretch of ocean makes all the difference. In Paris, a gallery’s approach to selling itself seems markedly different from the style that prevailed in London, with most of them nestling quietly in 18th-century courtyards behind heavy oak doors, or looking as if they’re shut. There are very few White Cube
-style über-galleries, apart from Yvon Lambert
, Emmanuel Perrotin
and Marian Goodman
, but even those three heavy hitters exude a more sedate sort of charm.
