Salon du Dessin

How does an exhibition of just 39 exhibitors manage to punch above its weight in terms of world recognition? There are lots of factors that make the Salon du Dessin, celebrating its 26th edition from March 22-27, such a singular event.

The Palais Brongniart, which has been the home of the Salon du Dessin for half the fair’s life, has limited space so the event cannot expand, but that is part of the attraction.

It creates the ambience of a specialist connoisseurial event where the majority of the visitors, many of them academics and curators from the US, UK and Germany, as well as collectors, are as knowledgable as the exhibitors. That ambience is reinforced by the fair’s symposium which features a roster of speakers, specialists in their field and the complementary loan exhibitions which shine a light on collections in particular institutions.
