Jean Ferrero creates in 1954 the Studio Ferrero, photography studio where he met many artists such as Picasso, Cocteau, Hartung but also young artists of Nice then unknown such as Arman, César, Klein, Ben, etc. In 1972, he opened the Galerie Ferrero, held mainly directed towards the artists of the School of Nice and New Realism.
In 2003, Jean Ferrero hands over to Guillaume Aral, who maintains the historical orientation of the gallery while opening it to a new generation of artists, mostly from the French Riviera. Guillaume Aral gave a new life to the Ferrero Gallery. The new headquarters of the gallery is at 6 rue du Congrès, in a more intimate and warm setting, plus a sculpture garden.
