Lucien Demotte was a Belgian art dealer born in Manhattan County, New York. In 1923, at the age of seventeen, Demotte inherited the art galleries of his father, George Demotte, in Paris, at 27 rue de Berri, and in New York, at 8 East 57th Street. The galleries specialized in the sale of medieval French art. He married twice, first to Andrée Kridel Wildenstein, daughter of the art dealer Felix Wildenstein, in 1931, and then to Simonne Thibault in 1933. He died of pneumonia on October 10, 1934, in New York.
