For its second edition, Fine Arts Paris has developed its cultural programme and has created a Fine Arts Week.
Like the Drawings Week held every year in March for the past twenty years or so, the aim of this week is to encourage the discovery or rediscovery of museums collections in Paris and the Ile-de-France.
Collectors, connoisseurs and experts are invited to private exclusive events, great occasions for exchanges and wonder, thanks to the involvement of curators and directors of the partner institutions of Fine Arts Paris.
2018 FINE ARTS WEEK
A sculpture week
To echo especially important recent events in the world of Sculpture, the first Fine Arts Week was entirely dedicated to this art.
The Fine Arts Week 2018, called for this occasion Sculpture Week, ran from Monday 5 to Sunday 11 November 2018.
EXHIBITION “Sculptors as Painters / Painters as Sculptors”
The example of Henry de Triqueti
This special exhibition was organized in partnership with the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Orléans and the Musée Girodet in Montargis.
The Musée des Beaux-Arts in Orléans and the Musée Girodet in Montargis have worked together to present at Fine Arts Paris the rich work of Henry de Triqueti (1803-1874), a painter whose sculptures made him famous.
The two museums, which were bequeathed the contents of the artist’s studio by his daughter, Blanche Lee Childe, will exhibit selected pieces that show how diverse Triqueti’s materials and techniques were, among them line drawing, polychrome, terracotta studies, oil painting, plaster modellos and fine marble.
A typical 19th century artist in terms of the creative abundance of his research, Triqueti freely combined different materials and drawing styles, as did Eugène Devéria and other contemporaries, to illustrate original, appealing aesthetic concepts.
PUBLICATION: The Heyday of Sculpture
On the occasion of its second edition, FINE ARTS PARIS is proud to publish The Heyday of Sculpture : 1850 – 1880, gathering 12 scientific texts from renowned scholars, under the supervision of Mrs Antoinette Le Normand-Romain.
In 2019, for the third edition of Fine Arts Paris, the number of exhibitors increased.
Fine Arts Paris pursued its wish to promote the influence of Paris as a stronghold of the world art market thanks to the works selected by its exhibitors and a rich program of cultural events composed of a museum exhibition within the Salon itself, and a Fine Arts Week, organized in partnership with some twenty Ile-de-France institutions and museums.
FINE ARTS WEEK
After a first edition devoted to sculpture, the Fine Arts Week, an “outside the walls” tour organized in partnership with the institutions, offered a program of unique visits, between essential exhibitions and discoveries of confidential places.
STREET ART PERFORMANCE
Andrea Ravo Mattoni reproduces Luca Giordano
Thursday the 14th of November, live performance of Andrea Ravo Mattoni at Fine Arts Paris. The street-artist reproduced a work by Luca Giordano (1634-1705), whose retrospective exhibition opened in the Petit Palais on the same day.
The sale’s benefits were for the restoration of the plaster The Thinker by Paul Cornet, kept in La Piscine – musée d’art et d’industrie André Diligent of Roubaix.
In 2019, Fine Arts Paris invited the Piscine–Musée d’Art et d’Industrie André-Diligent in Roubaix.
This exhibition summed up the spirit of the museum with a selection from its collection.
For its exhibition at Fine Arts Paris, the museum demonstrated its originality with a group of works that included ceramics, sculpture, textiles, fashion and painting. The museum’s setting and history, closely linked to the industrial heritage of Roubaix, was also addressed by recent images and archival documents.
