Two dynasties of art dealers with nearly 150 years of experience, continue their reputable legacy at the Salon du Dessin.
Represented today by the fifth generation of their founders, Brame & Lorenceau is principally engaged in the sale of works from private collections.
Since the first major exhibition of drawings and watercolours in 1968, "Les Maîtres du Dessin", the Gallery strives to select the very best works on paper and the most representative of each artist, with an equal focus on subject and composition. Moreover, a special effort is always made to offer a balanced choice between color and black & white works.
Brame & Lorenceau verifies the authenticity, ensures the conservation condition, and modifies framing when necessary. Each drawing is also provided with its most recent historic background. A harmonious balance results of this selection of taste and rigorous quality between works.
Numerous amateurs, collectors and curators are attending this event, appreciating and eventually making their choice among the variety of works we present.
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.
