The Biennale at the Grand Palais; prestigious temple of art
Posted in Events le
For nearly 60 years, the Biennale Paris (formerly the Biennale des Antiquaires) has been a leading focal point for the art, antiques and collectibles market in France. Taking place this year from September 13th to 17th in the magnificent setting of the Grand Palais, the Biennale is a treasure trove of fabulous items presented by professionals of international repute. Book your stay at the Hotel de la Motte Piquet to enjoy this major fair.
A panorama of several centuries of art
The majestic venue of the Grand Palais begins its 31st edition of the Biennale in customary fashion with an exhibition of rare pieces rigorously selected by a committee of experts. More than six millennia of art and artefacts are gathered in this prestigious, world-renowned salon, including antiques, fine arts and jewellery items exhibited by nearly 90 antique dealers and private collectors from around the world. The international guest of honour of the 2019 Paris Biennale is the Kingdom of Bahrain. The fair has organised a pavilion dedicated to the art and cultural heritage of this Persian Gulf island nation.
Prestigious exhibitors and a prestigious site
Among all the collections of the exhibitors gathered under the superb vaulted glass roof of the Grand Palais, you will have the opportunity to admire and perhaps even buy paintings and old drawings presented by the Ana Chiclana Gallery, well known by Spanish art lovers. Furniture and objets d'art from the 17th and 18th centuries will be exhibited by the noted antique dealer Ludovic Pellat de Villedon, and 20th century decorative works of art by Galerie Marcilhac, the oldest gallery in Paris. Bibliophiles will be drawn to the Paris Biennale bookstore of Amélie Sourget, a specialist in rare original literary editions and precious books from the fields of history, travel, economics, science and more.
