Christo Vladimirov Javacheff was born in 1935 in Gabrovo (Bulgaria). He studied to the Art Institute of Sofia from 1952 till 1956. The artist settled down in Paris in 1958 and met Jeanne-Claude de Guillebon, born the same year as him. They got married and decided to make common work. Their first personal exhibition was organized in 1961. The same year, they create packings on Cologne’s seaport. . . .

See & discover

Beyond works currently in stock, it seemed to me useful to combine business with pleasure by letting you discover others works by artists in my gallery. These artworks, now sold or removed from our website, have been in our stock in the past. These pages will undoubtedly make it possible for some of you to associate an image with its title or the other way round, for others it will be a good time to discover more on such and such artist. For the sake of confidentiality – the pieces being no longer available – we won't display neither their numbering or their price. For whatever reason, make sure to visit this amazing art database with to date 6441 online works just for your pleasure! Michelle Champetier
