Le Salon du Dessin : A transient museum for exceptional drawings

Since 1991, the Salon du Dessin, which was created by a small group of art dealers, is a reference for art lovers. The yearly event, in the historical building of the Paris Stock Exchange, attracts collectors from all around the world to Paris - but not only collectors. Experts, museum curators, academics and art lovers gather during this international event of major importance to the art market, equal to Maastricht TEFAF or the Paris Biennale des Antiquaires.

Presided over by Hervé Aaron, the Salon du Dessin is a showcase for internationally renowned galleries, carefully selected by the committee of French art dealers who founded the fair.

During this unique week in Paris dedicated to drawings, the selected galleries bring to light their most beautiful works on paper from the French, Italian, English and Northern schools... From Tiepolo to Delacroix, from Guercino to Louise Bourgeois, from Ingres to Bonnard, more than 1000 drawings will be presented to the public in the exceptional setting of the Palais Brongniart.
