GALERIE L'IBIS
Plan number 11
Speciality : Ancient Egyptian Art and Antiquities


Lucien Viola, grandson of the well-known antiquities dealer Maurice Nahman, is an art historian, collector, and antiquities dealer specializing in Egyptian art. The Viola-Nahman family has been involved in the Egyptian objects trade since 1890. He has worked closely with Ernest Kofler, the major Swiss collector of Egyptian art. Following his art studies at New York's Institute of Fine Arts in the early 1970s, Viola opened Galerie l’Ibis in New York and remained there until 1995. From 1995 through 2012, he pursued an interest in Berber art and put together a major collection of Moroccan artworks that will soon be on display at a private museum in Marrakech. Beginning in 2012, he returned to directing his Egyptian art gallery and since then has participated in many important international art fairs. He has donated Egyptian works to the Musée du Louvre and the Boston Museum of Fine arts, among other institutions. He is a member of the Appraisers Association of America, the Syndicat National des Antiquaires, BRUNEAF (the Brussels Non-European Art Fair), and the Société Française d’Egyptologie.
