Jean-Luc Richard, the gallerist says of the expansion -"I mainly support emerging and mid-career artists that I want to see accepted as major established international artists, and to do this I need to have a gallery in New York."

He continues in Le Figaro that "There is no question about that. If you want to see the best emerging artists, Galerie Richard is the place to go."
