Director: Fabienne Fiacre
Galerie Fabienne Fiacre is pleased to be participating for the second time at the prestigious Salon du Dessin. We are looking forward to presenting some beautiful nineteenth and twentieth century French school drawings, together with some seventeenth and eighteenth century works. In particular, we are focusing this year on an unpublished drawing by Alexandre-Évariste Fragonard (1780-1850), Charles Quint ramassant le pinceau du Titien (Charles V picking up Titian's brush), in brown ink with white highlights in gouache, and on an important work by Antoine Bourdelle (1861-1929), Pégase et le poète en plein vol (Pegasus and the Poet in Full Flight) in watercolour on black pencil.
After working in New York at the Stair Sainty Matthiesen gallery and at Brame et Lorenceau in Paris, Fabienne Fiacre opened her gallery in 2011 at 18 rue de l'Université in Saint-Germain-des-Prés, bringing together acquisitions guided by the spirit of the dealer-collector. On the ground floor of the hotel particulier, she presents a fine selection of 19th and 20th century works, of impeccable quality and condition, with particular attention to the framing.
Since 2017, the gallery has participated in Fine Arts Paris (FAB) and seeks to raise public awareness of lesser-known artists through 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.
