Director: Nathalie Motte Masselink
Established for more than ten years in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés in Paris, the Nathalie Motte Masselink gallery specialises in old masters drawings.
Although the gallery's clients include important museums and well-informed collectors, it is committed to presenting and promoting old masters drawings to a wider public, helping them to discover old drawings and to develop their knowledge and taste.
After having met you at the Salon du Dessin, we hope to welcome you at the gallery to continue to share about old drawings and discuss your expectations.

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.
