In 1966 Florence and Daiel Guerlain created their eponymous foundation as a non-profit organisation. Based in the family home in Les Mesnuls (Located in the Yvelines departement of the Ile-de-France region) the foundation has housed 25 exhibitions and art conferences as well as lithography and engraving workshops. Last year, the couple gifted some of their collection to the Musée nationale d'art moderne.

In 2007, Florence and Daniel Guerlain decided to refocus on their passion for drawing and set up  a contemporary drawing award. Intended for artists using drawing as their principal vehicle for creativity, whether the medium be paper, cardboard, collage or mural, it supports three artists a year. The works of these artists will be on display at the Guerlain Foundation stand at the Salon du Dessin. The winner of the prize will be announced on March 31st.

In the lead up to the Foundation's 10th anniversary, a part of the collection bequeathed to the Centre Pompidou will be exhibited overseas for the first time.
