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.

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.
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.
As part of the Sculpture Symposium Day organized by the Ecole du Louvre, the Petit Palais hosted on Wednesday 7 November, a roundtable followed by two talks related to the publication.
