Director: Ambroise Duchemin
Ambroise Duchemin, a third-generation art dealer, joined his father, Hubert Duchemin, in 2013. Two years later, in 2015, he established his own company within the Duchemin gallery located at 8 rue de Louvois, in Paris’ second arrondissement.
Since 2017, he has published a yearly catalogue presenting a selection of works on paper ranging from old master drawings to 20th century works. In these catalogues, which display a particular sensibility for the art of the 19th century, the names of great artists appear alongside those of more original and peculiar draughtsmen.

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.
