To visit Richard Gervais's amazing collection is to take a mini-tour of the world.  As a painter/designer I enjoy the visual thrill of surveying his carefully selected objects arranged skillfully in his showrooms and home gallery. I have had the privilege of working with Richard both professionally as an artist and as his client.  He is an intelligent and informed importer who is interested in the history and meaning of his collectibles respecting the cultures he travels to and imports from.  When you work with Richard you are not just buying a decorative object but a treasured and respected bit of the history of a culture.
