Director: Alexis Pentcheff
Young and dynamic, like its founders, the Alexis Pentcheff gallery is located in Marseille. Its choices are mostly guided by southern light, among the works of talented artists who have approached the Mediterranean shores.
Since its creation, the gallery has been working closely with the families or rights holders of most of the artists it presents. Specialized in painting and works on paper of the second half of the 19th and the first half of the 20th century, temporary exhibitions, thematic or retrospective, are very regularly organized in its Marseille space. The gallery also participates in several major events such as the BRAFA and Fine Arts & La Biennale.
In the summer of 2023, it will settle in new premises, on the seafront, in an emblematic house of the Marseille of the Belle Epoque.

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.
