Director: Nathalie Motte-Masselink
Owner and head of the gallery, Nathalie Motte Masselink is a young art dealer with a passion for drawings. The attributions she succeeded in establishing while she was still a student drove her to this field. After studying Art History at the Ecole du Louvre and La Sorbonne, Nathalie managed her business for an apartment for more than five years. She decided to open her own gallery in October 2010 in order to share her enthusiasm and discoveries with a larger public.
Today, Nathalie counts numerous private collectors as well as public institutions among her customers, including the Musée du Louvre, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Washington's Nationl Gallery and the J Paul Getty Museum.
Within her gallery, she focuses on exhibiting old masters drawings from various European schools as well as contemporary masters, always with a desire represent a diverse range of styles, tastes and expressions.
Depth of emotion and aesthetics are the main selection criteria for the works presented at the gallery. Furthermore, throrough research is carried out for each work and catalogues are published regularly.
The gallery will participate for its sixth consecutive year at the Salon du Dessin.
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.
