Directors: Martin Grässle, Florian Härb, Aurélie Tanaqui
Following Katrin Bellinger’s retirement from art dealing earlier this year, and having run Katrin Bellinger Kunsthandel in Munich for twenty-seven years, Martin Grässle has now set up on his own in new premises in central Munich.
He is joined by Florian Härb, his former colleague at Colnaghi, Katrin Bellinger’s London gallery, who had opened his own business in Saint James’s, London, in 2006.
Specializing in Old Master and Nineteenth Century Drawings, as well as paintings, both dealers have now joined forces again and will continue to serve, out of London and Munich, their international private and institutional clients.
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.
