    For art lovers from across the world, the Biennale des Antiquaires has been a must-attend event for more than half a century and quintessentially representative of the French « art de vivre ».

    It is an exceptional event where great art from all the worlds cultures is offered for sale in the magnificent Grand Palais. Yet time moves on, things must change and we must all evolve along with it. Today the Biennale is at a turning point in its history. The Biennale Paris becomes an annual event from 2017 onwards. It is now more focused - showcasing superbe works of art, magnificent paintings along with fine jewelry and watches.

    I will be offering a select group of archaic wood sculptures from the caves of the Korewori Rivier in New Guinea. These enigmatic figures can date back as far as the 10th century. This is the first time that such a group has been displayed and offered for sale.

    TEFAF comes to North America !!!

    I am very pleased to be returning to New York City as an exhibitor in the first ever showing of TEFAF in the USA. My last art fair in New York was in 2002 and since then I have waited patiently for the occasion to exhibit here once again.

    TEFAF - The European Fine Art Fair, is originally located in the small Dutch town of Maastricht at the heart of Europe. The fair is composed of some 270 of the world’s best dealers offering works of art spanning 10,000 years of history. Every year in March collectors, curators, dealers and advisors gather at TEFAF Maastricht for ten days to view and acquire the very best the art-market has to offer.

    Whether in Maastricht or now in New York TEFAF is an Art Fair created by dealers for collectors. This is where you can find a paleolithic flint axe displayed in-front of a Rothko, a New Guinea mask gracing a desk by Charlotte Perriand, a book of hours next to a Giacometti, and a Rembrandt facing a Cycladic figure. TEFAF is all about authenticity, refinement, connoisseurship, quality, and the “eye” !

    I am pleased to offer in resonance to my Oceanic & Eskimo Art a selection of early paintings by one of the most remarkable and versatile French artists - Jean Lurçat.

    After painting throughout the first half of the 20th century in the company of Arp, Derain, Ernst, Matisse, and Picasso he “re-invented” tapestry for which he became world renowned. His paintings from the heydays of the 20’s and 30’s are powerful precursors of the styles which would follow in the post-war period of design. He exhibited in London with Alex Reid and Lefevre Gallery, in New York at the Valentine Gallery and in Paris with Jeanne Bucher. Many of the great early collectors such as Chester Dale, George Salles or Edmond Bomsel had Lurçat paintings on their walls...

    I look forward to the pleasure of your visit to my stand at N° 22 and to sharing these wonderful works of art with you.

    United Kingdom
    Frieze Masters features more than 130 leading modern and historical galleries from around the world, showcasing art from the ancient era and Old Masters to the late 20th century in a unique contemporary context.

    Tastes change, as do the ways in which we look at art and how we present it. New aspects and facets come to light with innovative approaches and Frieze Masters hits it on the nail offering us a re-mastered and yet remarkably "Renaissance" way in which to appreciate and to collect the masterworks of humanity’s artists.

    Frieze Masters in London is now a pivotal "must see" event in the world's art fair circuit and I am so very pleased to be part of this remarkable Art Fair from the very beginning.

  • La Biennale des Antiquaires

    Exhibition : September 10 - September 18, 2016

    La Biennale des Antiquaires
    Le Grand Palais
    75008 Paris
    For art lovers across the world wishing to acquire the finest examples of antiques, fine art and jewellery, The Biennale des Antiquaires has been a must-attend event for close half a century. This year the fair has been revamped and we will see a lot of improvement in both the layout of the stands and the cross fertilization provided by an influx of young and exciting exhibitors. The new direction and the evolutive process in march has transformed the Biennale into a complete and innovative Art Fair in the heart of Paris. I am very pleased to announce that I will be exhibiting at the Biennale des Antiquaires for the very first time in 2016.

    I will have a very small stand at the Biennale - one of the smallest - but it is well known that size does not count - only quality counts ! I'm sure that you appreciate my selective offering of high quality works-of-art from Polynesia, Melanesia, Micronesia, Australia and the early Eskimo cultures of Alaska. I look forward to the pleasure of your visit to my stand at S36...

  • Parcours des Mondes

    Exhibition : September 06 - September 11, 2016

    Galerie Meyer - Oceanic Art
    17 rue des Beaux Arts
    75006 Paris
    I am pleased to offer a selective exhibition in the gallery during Parcours des Mondes. It will be focused on the notion of Series & Collections : groups of same-type objects, objects of similar form and/or function, and a collection of various objects of diverse provenance and typology all representing the same image. The exhibition will run only through the dates of Parcours des Mondes : 6 to 11 september. Parcours des Mondes is widely recognized as the world’s most important tribal art fair due to the quality and diversity of its participants. Since 2002, each year it has brought together some seventy galleries specializing in the arts of Africa, Asia, Oceania, and the Americas. During one week in September, German, American, British, Australian, Belgian, Canadian, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, and Swiss galleries come together in Paris to show alongside their colleagues who have a permanent presence in the fine arts neighborhood of Saint-Germain-des Prés. This exceptional concentration of experts and artworks is organized as a multiple-venue fair, at which visitors can mingle and interact as they stroll through the streets of this historic district. Each gallery offers an individualized and intimate presentation of often-unknown masterpieces from Africa, Oceania, the Americas, or Asia. These range from easily affordable ethnographic works to rare and coveted artworks much sought after by collectors. This dynamic fair, which has received a great deal of media coverage and praise, owes its success to the robustness of the healthy state of the tribal art market, an ever increasing interest in the arts it represents, the efforts made by dealers to produce high-quality thematic exhibitions, and those made by the fair’s vigilant management to ensure that the highest standards are upheld.
