Fine Arts Paris
Taking place in November, at the Carrousel du Louvre, an emblematic venue in the French capital, Fine Arts Paris is a fair to admire and purchase drawings, paintings or sculptures. Created in 2017 by the organizers of the Salon du Dessin, Fine Arts Paris is a specialist art fair dedicated to the fine arts from antiquity to modern times. The show doens’t hide its ambition to become the leading French fair for major collectors and museums. In this event held in a unique and prestigious location, more than 40 exhibitors from France, Switzerland, Belgium, Netherlands, Italy, Spain and the United States are showcased to promote the influence of Paris as a stronghold of the global art market. In 2019, Fine Arts Paris widened its offering by welcoming new disciplines as modern painting, comtemporary tapestry, archeology, among others.

What would you say is the DNA of Fine Arts Paris?
Fine Arts Paris aims to make Paris shine and give it a strong position in the world’s art market. The DNA of the fair can be summarized in four words: specialisation, diversity, modernity and quality.
What type of galleries are chosen to exhibit, and why?
We are always looking for reliable and renowned galleries, but we also want to give younger galleries the opportunity to meet an international audience by participating in the fair. We always try to challenge ourselves and we recently opened to other art specialities and periods. We deeply aim to build a quality dynamic fair that evolve with the ever-changing art market.
What is the price range of pieces? Who is the average buyer?
The price range is very broad. Artworks are sold between €2.000 and several million euro!
