Salon du Dessin 2019
Palais Brongniart, Paris, 27 March — 1 April 2019

The eagerly anticipated Salon du Dessin will take place again this spring under the vaulted roof of Paris’s Palais Brongniart and will once again feature a selection of outstanding works on paper. among the 39 exhibitors from around the world will be four handpicked new galleries and two that are returning after an absence of a few years. Among the treasures on display will be rare drawings by egon schiele and Gustav Klimt, presented by the Austrian gallery Wienerroither & Kohlbacher, and a solo show of the work of contemporary artist Jean-Baptiste Sécheret on the stand of Galerie Jacques Elbaz. The German dealer Martin Moeller will celebrate 100 years of drawings from his country, while the Galerie de la Présidence features drawings by sculptors.

Juan Antonio Conchillos y Falcó, Academic Study, 1703; offered by Artur Ramon Art ($36,000).

The 28th edition of the art fair will also host two museum-level exhibitions. Festivities in Paris will feature drawings from the collection of the Musée Carnavalet-Histoire de Paris (currently closed for renovation until late 2019), while the Maison Chaumet will exhibit drawings of its jewelry in an exhibition on the theme of nature, curated by botanist Marc Jeanson, who worked on the magnificent exhibition Jardins at the Grand Palais in 2017.

Other highlights of the Salon du Dessin will be the presentation of the 12th Daniel and Florence Guerlain Drawing Prize and the return of a program of international symposia, which will focus on the performing arts this year. Drawing Week, a highly popular off-site event organized in partnership with over 20 museums and institutions, will offer access to graphic arts collections that are usually off-limits to the public.
