Director: Hélène Bailly
Born into a famous family of gallery owners, art dealers and auctioneers, Helene Bailly Marcilhac inherited in 2007 the family gallery founded by her parents in 1977 on the left bank of Paris, quai Voltaire and opened the same year her own space rue de Seine.
She is established since 2015 on the right bank, opposite the Bristol Hotel at 71 rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, a nexus of business, luxury and art.
Within her space comprising now three levels, Helene Bailly Marcilhac offers a selection of pieces from the fundamental movements that occurred between the late 19th to 20th century, permanently showing works by artists such as Pissarro, Sisley, Monet, Renoir, Matisse, Marquet, Van Dongen, Picabia, Fernand Léger, Picasso, Braque, Juan Gris, Chagall, Zadkine, Calder, Joan Miro, Vieira da Silva, de Staël or Bernard Buffet.
Beyond its exhibition program and artistic projects, the Helene Bailly Gallery also collaborates with prestigious institutions such as the Musée d'Orsay, the Musée du Quai Branly, the Musée Jacquemart-André, the Musée de Montmartre in Paris, the Musée de l’Annonciade in Saint-Tropez, the Musée Courbet in Ornans, the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, the Museum Thyssen-Bornemisza in Madrid, the Bruce Museum in Greenwich or the MoMA in New York.
She also participates in international art fairs such as the BRAFA, the Salon du Dessin, Masterpiece London, the Biennale Paris or PAD London among others.
Helene Bailly Marcilhac is moreover a member of the Syndicat National des Antiquaires, the Nocturne Rive Droite Association, the Professional committee of art galleries, the PAD Selection Committee, Femmes Capitales and an Expert Accredited by the European Chamber of Expert-Advisors in Fine Art.
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.
