Tribal Art

Story of a Passion

d'une Passion

Collector and dealer specializing in primitive art since 1994, Olivier Larroque first worked in Paris before moving to Nîmes where he opened his gallery in 2004.

Member of Parcours des Mondes since 2005, he also participates in the main international tribal art fairs: Bruneaf, Cultures or Civilizations in Brussels, Burgundy Tribal Show or Tribal Art Amsterdam. Since 2009 he has published more than fifteen thematic catalogs for these events, which can be consulted on this site.

In 2010 he is the author of the book Vaca Bruto, du quotidien au sacré, taureaux d'Afrique Noire (Vaca Bruto, from the everyday to the sacred, bulls of Black Africa) of which he was curator of the eponymous exhibition at the Museum of Nîmes. He is a member of the Tribal Art Society and World Art


In March 2024, Olivier Larroque and his eldest son Ferdinand opened the LARROQUE Père & Fils gallery at 19 rue Mazarine in Paris. Right in the heart of Saint Germain des Prés, a mythical district for lovers of art from afar, throughout the year they offer an unprecedented confrontation between tribal art on the one hand, and modern art and contemporary ceramics on the other. A cross-view of two generations of art dealers, in a place designed as a showcase to share with you the passion that drives us in our insatiable quest for aesthetic emotion.


The gallery is open from Thursday to Saturday, 10:30am to 1pm and 2pm to 7pm, or by appointment.
