Story
Introduction

Jules Petroz was born in 1960 in Geneva. Initiated by his parents, also antiquarians, to the world of fine art and antiques, he studied History of Art at the University of Geneva. Jules has more than 20 years experience to his active, and since 1990, has been collaborating with his wife, Aicha. They deal mainly in Switzerland and in France, and their research extends to the rest of Europe, where they are always on the lookout for unique pieces. They have been supplying museums, world-renowned galleries and interior designers with rare pieces of furniture.
Their interest covers antiques, from archaeological finds to contemporary pieces and modern design, as well as Haute Époque, Renaissance and the 18th Century, with a special interest in Old Master drawings, prints, paintings and ceramics. They also buy books, sculptures and old photographs. Always on the move, from one fair to another, they visit large and small galleries as well as private clients.
Aicha and Jules are well-known figures in Geneva, having discovered, hidden beneath a pastel painting, what very seemingly appears to be a portrait of a late 19th-Century actress, demi-mondaine Mary Laurent, by Edouard Manet.

It is possible to visit you at home for an assessment of items or collections.

Working closely with experienced professionals, they provide the best service for removals,
clearing out apartments, attics and basements.
Additionally, Jules is available for advice in investment in art and antiques.

For appointments, please call 00 41 78 7654321 or contact by email.

Jules Petroz is also the author of a book " Un Manet si bien cache "

In his book, Jules Petroz relates how with his wife Aïcha, they found a hidden treasure beneath a worthless pastel on paper. Bought for a few francs at Geneva Flea Market, a beautiful portrait of a ravishing woman secreted under another insipid portrait. After month of research and hard work they concluded that it couldn’t be attributed to any artist but Edouard Manet; than this masterpiece could be the source itself of impressionism, inspired by the actress demimondaine and courtesan fin de siecle Mery Laurent.
To avoid a fatal destruction due to it’s erotic charge, the languorous portrait had no other choice than to be hidden for more than a hundred years.
A captivating intrigue in a Paris Second Empire, the secret world of an apparently insignificant woman, who has held under her influence the most eminent men of her time if not there mistress.: le prince de Metternich, Robert de Montesquiou, George Moore, Villiers de l’Isle-Adam, Huysmans, Bloy, Degas, Antonin Proust, Louise Abbema, Mendes, Sully Prud’homme, Champsaur, Paul Adam, Gambetta, Theodore Duret, Emile Banche, Whistler, Odilon Redon, Reynaldo Hahn,Verlaine…
Mery Laurent was also Nana for Emile Zola, Stephane Mallarme’s crazy love and Odette Swan for Marcel Proust

Jules Petroz, describes in a provocative way his gigantic struggle when a new Manet appears on the very private land of big merchants and experts, lords of the sacrosanct art market.
