Director: Patrick Lancz
For twenty-five years, Patrick Lancz has specialized in the Belgian school which covers the symbolist, impressionist and fauve period of the 1890s.
However, over the years, he has extended his specialization to the Belgian avant-garde of the 1920s and to abstraction of the 1950s to 1970s. His priority is with Belgian artists, but a few exceptions, cases of “love at first sight” extend his collection to more international artists.

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.
