Director: Artur Ramon Navarro
Artur Ramon is the fourth generation of a family of antique dealers whose business began in the 1920s and set up shop in Barcelona in 1942.
In spite of being generalists, ARTUR RAMON ART have always paid a great deal of attention to antique drawing, especially 17th to 19th century Spanish and Italian drawings, with five biannual exhibitions under the generic title «Raíz del Arte» (“The Roots of Art”, 1993-2003) culminating with the monographic exhibition «El papel del dibujo en España» (“The Role of Drawing in Spain”), in association with the Caylus gallery in Madrid (2006). The catalogues from these exhibitions are regarded as essential to the study of Spanish drawing.
The gallery has participated in the TEFAF Maastricht art fair since 2010 and the Salon du Dessin since 2009.
Artur Ramon has offered his drawings to private collectors from Spain and abroad, as well as to such museums and institutions as the Museo del Prado and the Musée du Louvre.

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.
