A graduate of the Ecole du Louvre in Paris, Valérie
Levesque took an early interest in Asian art. She explains
in The Art Newspaper (n° 108, Nov.2002) that her grandmother’s
Asian art collection had influenced her in her choice to specialise
in Chinese and Japanese art.
While still a student, a visit to the Guimet Museum was a
revelation and was the starting point of her passion. She
first specialised in Chinese and Japanese porcelain then extended
her acquisitions to paintings, lacquers, cloisonné,
jade objects, ivories, etc..
