Director: Fabienne Fiacre
Galerie Fabienne Fiacre is very pleased to be participating for the first time at the prestigious Salon du Dessin. We are looking forward to presenting some beautiful nineteenth and twentieth century French school drawings, the speciality of the gallery, along with some significant seventeenth and eighteenth century works. In particular, we are focusing on an unpublished 1749 Jean Restout drawing, La Déification d'Énée, preparatory for his painting in Strasbourg at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs and on a rare work from the short life of the artist Henri Regnault (1843 - 1871), representing Judith and Holofernes, dated 1869, evocative of the painting in the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Marseille.
After working in New York at the Stair Sainty Matthiesen gallery and at Brame et Lorenceau in Paris, Fabienne Fiacre opened her own gallery in 2011 at 18 rue de l'Université, in Saint-Germain-des-Prés. Feeling professionally closer to the profile of the "dealer-collector", each of her purchases is guided by her personal taste. On the ground floor of an hôtel particulier, she presents the finest possible selection of 19th and 20th century works, with unpublished works of impeccable quality and condition, having taken care of restorations and framing.
Since 2017, the gallery has participated in Fine Arts Paris (Fine Arts Paris & La Biennale) and seeks to raise public awareness of exhibitions as diverse as "Georges Leroux (1877 - 1957)", "Small is Beautiful" or more recently, "André Devambez (1867 - 1944) Part of Our Childhood ".

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.
