Ludovic Rousset

Ludovic Rousset brings with him a wealth of experience in the art and antiques field. Born in the south of France, Ludovic graduated from the Institut D'etudes Superieures d'Art (IESA) (The European Institute of Art Sciences) in Paris and promptly began his career working for an art and antiques gallery. He left Paris in 2006 to work with an antiques gallery in West Palm Beach where he specialized in European masterpieces of the 18th and 19th centuries. After meeting him at a prestigious antiques fair in 2009, Bill Rau was not only impressed with Ludovic's incredible knowledge, but also with his obvious enthusiasm for fine art and antiques. Ludovic's experience at galleries in the United States and France give him a unique perspective, and he is eager to share that experience and knowledge with his clients.
