Galerie Bailly opened its doors to the public in 1977 at 25 Quai Voltaire, in the prestigious art district of Paris.
30 years later, Charly and Hanna Bailly, continuing the family passion and tradition, founded the Bailly Gallery in Geneva, Switzerland.
The gallery’s vast collection consists of artworks by some of the greatest masters from the 19th and 20th centuries, such as Auguste Rodin, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Marc Chagall, Pablo Picasso, Lucio Fontana, Serge Poliakoff, Chu The-Chun, Zao Wou Ki, François-Xavier and Claude Lalanne, amongst others.
By means of its meticulously selected collection, focused on modern and post-war art and including the highest quality paintings, sculptures and works on paper, Bailly Gallery prides itself in helping to create and enrich important collections for both institutions and private collectors worldwide.

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.
