Salon du Dessin à Paris

The Art World will once again make its way to the Salon du Dessin at the Palais Brongniart in Paris from 21 – 26 March to take a fresh look at the subject of drawing, a sometimes overlooked aspect of art.

The Salon, an international art fair is dedicated to every aspect of drawing and includes Old Master drawings. It is attended by the world’s leading specialists in works on paper. 

More than 1,000 drawings will be showcased in the prestigious Palais Brongniart. It has become a ‘must-attend’ event for art lovers. Many of the best galleries from Europe and further afield are represented providing wonderful discoveries for art lovers.

The Salon du Dessin is now firmly anchored, not only in Paris but worldwide, as it is theinternational reference in this field of drawing. Its success is measured by the number of events that flourish both on the market and in institutions as well as the presence of international dealerswho this year will occupy more than half the stands at the salon. Five new non-French dealers are joining a total of 39 exhibitors and two are returning after an absence of several years.

The Galerie de Bayser will show a rare preparatory drawing by Cesare da Sesto (1477-1523) one of Leonardo da Vinci’s most famous pupils. This drawing was made for the painting of Salome, created around 1520 which is now in the collections of Vienna’s Kunsthistorisches Museum. Very few preparatory drawings by him are known. One showing the hand holding the hair of St. John the Baptist’s head, at Windsor Castle, another showing Salomé’s arm at the Accademia in Venice. A third drawing attributed to him, showing Salome’s foot, is at Berlin. This is an exceptional discovery.

The gallery will bring a refined drawing by Reinier Vinkeles (1741-1816), showing the Dutch travel writer Jacob Haafner in conversation with the Jammedaar at Alamparvé, Ceylon. A rare theme, as Haafner was one of the first Europeans to revolt against colonialism.
