About the Gallery
For more than three decades, the DeVorzon Gallery has been like the art world, ever changing, always interesting and provocative. With one eye on investment…the other eye, and the heart of the gallery, focused on the opening of new windows that bring joy and beauty to its clients.
The gallery opened in 1968 on La Cienega Boulevard’s “Gallery Row,” specializing in 20th century master prints. In addition to a large collection of Chagall, Picasso, Miro and Matisse, DeVorzon also introduced Albers and Vasarely to Los Angeles. The gallery enjoyed a marvelous success, expanding several times at the original location.
In 1980. The DeVorzon Gallery was invited to move to the premier location within the prestigious Pacific Design Center. This extraordinary new space enabled Barbara DeVorzon to showcase the paintings, sculpture and works on paper of the new California art movement. Among those she represented were Joe Goode, Ed Ruscha, Sam Francis and John Kennedy. Her clientele encompassed old and new collectors, interior designers, plus film and television production companies. Headquarters of many major corporations including Xerox, Cyprus Mines, Avery International, Shell Oil and Continental Telephone commissioned Barbara DeVorzon to create meaningful collections that would enhance the working environment.
Embracing an old world concept of showing art in an elegant home setting, the DeVorzon Gallery relocated to Cento Angeli in 1994. Dorothy Rice included the villa in her lavish coffee table book Beverly Hills With Love:
I fell in love with this spectacular hillside home masterfully decorated with beautiful antiques and some of the most vibrant, colorful and expressive artwork you can imagine. The home’s gorgeous pool area, lush gardens and magnificent natural light enhance the overall effect created by the exquisite taste of it’s owner, art consultant, Barbara DeVorzon.
In recent years the gallery has added exciting new artists from Spain, Italy, France, South America, and the United States.
