Philippe Ratton is born the 26th of August 1949, his father Maurice Ratton, a Primitive Arts renowned dealer, settled rue de Grenelle in Paris.

In 1973, after his father’s death, he took over the 28 rue de Grenelle gallery in Paris and in less than ten years, made himself a name. In 1990, he began a partnership with Daniel Hourdé and opened the Ratton-Hourdé gallery on rue des Beaux-Arts, which presented for several years significant thematic exhibitions.
