Director : Eric Coatalem
The Eric Coatalem Gallery, founded in 1986, is specialized in the paintings, drawings and sculptures of French masters from the 17th to the 20th century.
Since 1994, the gallery has presented solo exhibitions of Lubin Baugin (1610 - 1663), George-Augustus Wallis (1761-1847), François Perrier (1594-1649), Louyse Moillon (1610-1696), Gustav Klimt (1862 - 1918) but also exhibitions with the main French masters of the seventeenth century (Baugin, Le Brun, Le Dwarf, Le Sueur, Perrier, Stella, Vouet ...) or the eighteenth century (Fragonard, Chardin, Boucher, Hubert Robert, ... ..). Each year, the gallery publishes one or two catalogs with the novelties dating from the 17th to the 20th century.
As of 1994, the gallery regularly participates at the Biennale Paris and the Salon du Dessin in Paris and at Tefaf Maastricht and Tefaf New York.
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.
