#MODIGLIANI Take a closer look at the Altounian’s Collection! Driven by his passion for collecting antiques, Joseph Altounian created close bounds with many 20th century artists from the Bateau-Lavoir such as Modigliani or Picasso. On view during the Paris Biennale at Artcurial, the collection includes six exceptional drawings from Amedeo Modigliani. A firm friendship developed between Altounian and the Italian modern artist, who drew his portrait in 1917. That piece of work has remained in the family until this day, among the five other drawings in the collection. It is time to rediscover the history of an artistic relationship between an antique dealer and an artist at Hôtel Dassault from September 11th to 16th. ⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ AMEDEO MODIGLIANI⁠⠀ Portrait de Joseph Altounian, 1917⁠⠀ Estimate : 50,000 – 70,000 €⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ Collection of Joseph Altounian, Antique dealer to museums, friend to artists⁠⠀ Exhibition, September 11 - 16, 11am to 6pm⁠⠀ Auction, September 17 at 7pm⁠⠀ Auction, September 18 at 2pm⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ #artcurial #auctionhouse #artcollection #artcollector #josephaltounian #amedeomodigliani #parisbiennale #collector #drawings

#OUTOFTHESHADOW Long forgotten, it is finally Nadia Léger’s time to shine! Artcurial is dedicating an exhibition to her on the occasion of the release of her monograph written by Aymar du Châtenet “Nadia Léger, l’histoire extraordinaire d’une femme de l’ombre”. Controversial character, Nadia, the red billionaire, was even suspected by her critics of being a Soviet spy! Born in 1904 in Belarus, she devoted a large part of her life to painting, inspired by different styles and artistic movements. Influenced by Malevitch, Mondrian and of course her husband Fernand Léger, she caught herself deeply fond of both cubist and surrealist art. Her most outstanding works depict the 1950s social realism. You can get to admire them at the exhibition! For the first time, a book is dedicated to the work of Nadia Léger, a painter whose immense talent was obscured by the notoriety of her husband to whom she dedicated her life. Hit the link in our bio for more information about the exhibition on the bookstore’s website!⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ NADIA LEGER⁠⠀ Maternité, 1950⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ Exhibition (Preview Room )⁠⠀ September 5 – 8, 9am to 7pm⁠⠀ 7 rond-point des Champs Elysées ⁠⠀ 75008 Paris⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ #artcurial #auctionhouse #artcollection #artcollector #nadialeger #exhibition #russianpainter #communist #malevitch #mondrian #fernandléger #artcurialbookstore @artcurial_librairie ⁠⠀

#LINDBERGH Well-known for his cinematic and powerful images, the German photographer and film director Peter Lindbergh (1944-2019 ) has died yesterday at the age of 74. He photographed iconic 90’s supermodels like Naomi Campbell and more recently, he collaborated with the Duchess of Sussex to shoot visuals for the September issue of Vogue magazine. Exhibited in museums all around the world such as the Centre Georges-Pompidou, the MET or the Victoria & Albert Museum, Peter Lindbergh’s work marked the history of photography with his legendary minimalist black and white clichés. As an undeniable footprint in photography, he remains an inspiration for present and future generations.⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ © Peter Lindbergh⁠ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ #artcurial #auctionhouse #artcollection #artcollector #peterlindbergh #artwork #photographer #filmdirector #supermodel #naomicampbell #voguemagazine #minimalist #postmodernist #photography ⁠⠀

#BEACHY Born in 1928, Bernard Buffet defended representational art when abstraction was the predominant artistic style. An active member of the anti-abstraction group L’homme Témoin, Buffet developed a style which quickly became immediately recognizable. Melancholic and somber in tone, his oeuvre has been interpreted as a representation of the emotional state of the post-war generation. This Homme assis et plage was one of the stars of this semester’s Impressionist & Modern Art auction. May your summer be as beachy and reflective!
