Director: Patrick Lancz
It was in the Sablon district of Brussels that Patrick Lancz opened his first gallery in 1991. A fervent admirer of the Belgian School, which covers the Symbolist, Impressionist and Fauvist period of the years 1890-1930, he also specializes in Belgian avant-garde of the 1920s and the abstraction of the 1950s-1970s. Patrick Lancz organizes two to three exhibitions a year with the ambition of offering a varied range of artists whose works offer a harmony of techniques and colors while combining old quality framing. The rest of the year, the picture rails of the gallery host various sets that change with the seasons.
The gallery's clientele includes both private and public buyers such as the Musée d'Ixelles, the Royal Museums of Fine Arts in Brussels, the Musée d'Orsay and many international collectors. Patrick Lancz also participates in various international fairs including the Salon du Dessin, Fine Arts Paris & La Biennale and the BRAFA Art Fair. The objective is to present to the public an overview of the riches of Belgian art of the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries: Arthur Craco, Walter Sauer, Léon Spilliaert, Firmin Baes, Théo Van Rysselberghe and many others. In this way, the Lancz Gallery wishes to arouse the curiosity of art lovers and offer them a place of discovery.

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.
