I have always been attracted by auctions. The atmosphere, that is very particular, can change in a blink of an eye, as everyone is trying to take hold on the coveted object. An experience of discovery, from objects that are uncommon and extraordinary to art pieces with an history in the making. I have already talked to you about it, during the Monaco Art Week and there we are, Artcurial just dropped his luggage at the Hermitage Hotel, for some very special selling! In love with this hotel and just next to my home, it is a perfect timing and place! Moreover, Hermitage has been the choice for my wedding and coming back there, it is always a pleasure.
From the 15th July 2019, Artcurial arranged a meeting of International collectors for an entire week of prestigious and exclusive expositions and selling. On the 17th- 18th and 19th of July, within the walls of the beautiful hotel, the summer sales take place offering a diversified range of exclusive objects: Jewellery, collectors watches, “Les temps est femminin”, Hermes summer collection and a large, private and exceptional collection of fashion accessories: From Brazil to Monaco.
