Director: Agnès Aittouarès
Established by Agnès Aittouarès in 1989, Galerie AB is situated in the heart of the Drouot area, a central meeting place for artists, collectors and art dealers from all over the world.
She presents artworks dating from 1850 to the present day, including those by Henri Fantin-Latour, Aristide Maillol, Léon Spilliaert, Frank Kupka, Sonia Delaunay and Alexandre Calder.
Her taste for discovering new cultures leads her to present artist from emerging countries such as India with Sahied Raza, Iran with Nasser Assar or China with Zao Wou KI, Chu Teh Chun and Tand Haiwen.
Passionate about graphic art, she participates in numerous international fairs such as Art Miami, BRAFA in Belgium or Salon du Dessin and Art Elysées in Paris.
Due to the gravity of the international situation resulting from the spread of COVID-19 and in order to protect the health of all parties concerned, we have decided to cancel the 29th edition of the Salon du dessin.
France officially declared a state of health emergency on 24 March for two months and there are still numerous uncertainties regarding the evolution of the pandemic over the coming months. These factors make it impossible to reprogram the Salon before the summer of 2020 and the Salon du dessin, which usually attracts numerous other events in Paris for a week, will therefore not take place this year.
Louis de Bayser, President of the Salon du dessin said “this is a difficult decision to take with regard to all those who worked hard for this edition, but our priority is to protect the health of all our exhibitors, visitors and partners”.
We send our thoughts to all those affected by this epidemic and hope that this unprecedented health situation will quickly change favorably.
