The Salon du Dessin: an unmissable international event

The 32nd edition of the Salon du Dessin had a dynamic attendance of 15,000 visitors, up 25% vs. the 2023 edition, including curators from museums around the world (like the Met in New York, the Getty museums in L.A., the Museum of Fine Arts and the Fogg Art Museum in Boston, the Museum of Fine Arts in Philadelphia, the British Museum, the Harvard Museum, the Kunstmuseum in Basel, the Albertina in Vienna, the Kupferstich Kabinett in Hamburg ... ) who were numerous this year. All were active buyers and they contributed to the Salon du Dessin being an unmissable event for all kinds of drawing enthusiasts.

This year, the fair paid a special tribute to the French artist, Jean Dubuffet, marking the fiftieth anniversary of the creation of the Fondation Dubuffet which mounted a particularly appreciated exhibition revealing the diversity of his works on paper produced between 1935 and 1985.

The fair also hosted the attribution of the Daniel and Florence Guerlain Foundation’s 17th Contemporary Drawing Prize, which was awarded to the Israeli artist Amir Nave.

The Salon du Dessin is the world’s leading event showcasing the very best in Old, Modern and Contemporary art. It is also the central event for all the peripheral shows and sales focusing on paper- based arts during Drawing week (La Semaine du Dessin) when Paris becomes the global capital of drawing for a week.

With 39 exhibitors (like every year) and a significant proportion of foreign galleries (17 from 8 different countries), the 32th edition of the Salon du Dessin will be welcoming 4 new exhibitors who have never before exhibited at the Salon du Dessin: the Roman gallery Paolo Antonacci, the London gallery Emanuel von Baeyer, François Delestre Fine Arts, which has opened a branch in Paris after many years in London, and the Galerie 1900-2000, which will show a wide selection of works on paper related to Surrealism and the 20th century avant-garde.

The organizers of the Salon du Dessin wish to express their disapproval of the degrading and caricatural depiction of certain characters in a short story entitled Les allées du salon (the Aisles of the Salon) recently published in the book Bien trop près du feu et autres nouvelles (Far Too Close to the Fire, and Other Stories) by Louis-Antoine Prat.

According to Louis de Bayser, President of the Salon du Dessin, “The Salon du Dessin is recognized and appreciated for its warm and friendly atmosphere of mutual respect and impeccable professional standards. We are therefore justifiably offended by the detestable description of certain characters in this story which unfolds in the aisles of our Salon”.

The 32nd edition of the Salon du Dessin will take place at the Palais Brongniart from March 20 to 25, 2024.
