Next month in Paris:

8ème Parcours de la Céramique et des Arts du Feu
Paris, 22–27 September 2015

This year, participants will gather in the heart of the French capital, mainly within the Carré Rive Gauche, 75007 Paris. This event will last six days, from Tuesday 22 September until Sunday 27 September 2015, from 11am to 8pm, with an evening opening on the first day and closing at 6pm on the Sunday. The twenty-four participating French and European specialist antique dealers and gallery owners come from Paris, London, Rome, Brussels, etc. and are all members of the Association des Spécialistes de la Céramique de Collection. They will be offering quality pieces from all civilisations and all periods, within a wide price range, and specially set aside for this event. Encouraged by the participating dealers and with the warm support of museum curators, the Association des Spécialistes de la Céramique de Collection, whose aim is to promote ceramics and Arts du Feu, will be organising two days of lectures.

The cultural project of the 8th circuit will be celebrating the Adda Collection on the fiftieth anniversary of its sale by auction at Palais Galliéra, Paris, in 1965. This historic event lasted a whole week and saw the dispersal of exceptional pieces of Italian Majolica, items of Hispano-Mauresque origin, Chinese and Middle-Eastern ceramics, glass and enamels.

Lectures will be given on Wednesday 23 September 2015 on the following subjects: the transformation of the market for Italian Majolica over the last 50 years and the evolution in prices, and the scientific advances in attributions over the same period. Vincennes and Sèvres sculpture of the 18th century will be honoured with two lectures on this theme on Thursday 24 September, coinciding with the exhibition at Sèvres, Cité de la Céramique.

The 8th circuit of Ceramics and Arts du Feu is open to all: enthusiasts, art lovers, curators, historians and anyone tempted by this ceramic feast. You will discover not only rare and magnificent Italian majolica, faience, Chinese terracotta and porcelain, Iznik and Middle-Eastern ceramics, Meissen and Sèvres porcelain, but also enamels and antique and modern glass, not forgetting contemporary ceramics.

We are particularly grateful to our participating colleagues who run galleries specialising in the 20th and 21st centuries. They are numerous this year: Galerie Jean d’Albis, Galerie Arcanes, Galerie France de Forceville, Galerie Michèle Hayem, Lefebvre & Fils, Galerie Dumonteil, Gendras Regnier.
