Directors: Florian Härb, Liberté Nuti
Florian Härb and Liberté Nuti are dealers and agents in master drawings, paintings and, occasionally, sculptures and prints.
Specialising in works on paper from the sixteenth to the twenty-first centuries, they each have well over twenty years’ experience in the art trade and the valuation of works of art for the purposes of sale and insurance, as well as in collection management.
A noted scholar in Florentine Renaissance art, Florian’s particular expertise lies in the field of Italian drawings of the sixteenth through eighteenth centuries, but he also handles French and German drawings of the nineteenth century. After working as a specialist in the Old Master Drawings department at Christie’s in New York and London, Florian joined P. & D. Colnaghi in the early 2000s to run the Drawings department with Katrin Bellinger. In 2006 he set up his own business, dealing from premises in St. James’s, London.
He has recently joined forces with Liberté Nuti, who has spent over two decades in the Christie’s Impressionist and Modern department, where she was International Director and Head of Private Sales, London, and two years at the contemporary art gallery Hauser & Wirth in London, where she was Senior Director for Impressionist and Modern Art.
Florian Härb has been participating in the Salon du Dessin since 2000.

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.
