Our history

A true institution for the arts and letters

3, quai Malaquais has always been marked by the presence of the arts and letters. In fact, since the late 18th century, the premises have been home to several bookshops. And it was here, in 1932, that Jean Renoir set the bookshop for his film Boudu sauvé des eaux, starring Michel Simon. In 1969, Éditions A.C Mazo, where Yves Lebouc works, bought the Bouquinerie de l'Institut and moved into its premises at 3, quai Malaquais.

A close link with the Gallery of the Institute

In 1983, the Bouquinerie de l'Institut moved to 12, rue de Seine and sold 3, quai Malaquais to Lucien Desalmand. He named it Galerie Arenthon and continued to operate as a gallery of prints and illustrated books. In 1989, Yves Lebouc became owner of the Bouquinerie de l'Institut and, with his children Marc and Anne-Gaëlle, created the Quedillart SA family group, which in 2007 reintegrated the Galerie Arenthon alongside the Bouquinerie de l'Institut and the Galerie de la Bouquinerie. In 2021, the Bouquinerie de l'Institut will become the Galerie de l'Institut.
