A Taste for the Greats of 20th-Century Design

EXHIBITION: 7, 9, 10, 11 September 2019
AUCTION: 12 September 2019

On 12 September in Paris, Sotheby's will present for sale 200 works from a collection which took 30 years to gather in a Saint-Germain-des-Prés apartment.

A very much Parisian collection dedicated to 20th-century design, it epitomizes both the spirit of the district of Saint-Germain des Prés as well as the taste and flair of its owner. It includes works by Claude and François-Xavier Lalanne, André Dubreuil, Jean Després and Line Vautrin, alongside famous Italian designers such as Carlo Bugatti and Massimo Micheluzzi.

Florent Jeanniard, Head of Sotheby's European Design Department, said: "As a true Saint-Germain-des-Prés resident, the owner… made most of his acquisitions in neighboring galleries, carefully building, over a period of some 30 years, an impressive ensemble of 20th-century design that not only speaks to his great eye, but also captures the beating heart of the district from which it was born."
