The week ends with two online sales, Chagall et la Musique : Œuvres provenant de la succession de l’artiste (Partie III) and Roland Petit & Zizi Jeanmaire : Un patrimoine pour la danse (Partie II).

Must-attend event of this exceptional week, the Art Impressionniste & Moderne: Œuvres choices sale showcases outstanding paintings by the leading artists of the 20th century such as Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Marc Chagall, and Léon Spilliaert.

The next day, the Art Impressionniste & Moderne sale offers a unique selection of works of rare provenance including a sough-after Nabi oil by Maurice Denis, an emblematic painting by Camille Pissarro, and a delicate bronze by Alberto Giacometti.

Man Ray (1890-1976)

Henri Matisse (1869-1954)

The week moves with a colorful and joyful rhythm until 6 April with the online sale dedicated to Chagall et la Musique featuring paintings, gouaches, drawings, and lithographs by the artist.

This sale is presented as a journey to the core of Chagall's inexhaustible imagination and creation: a wonderful concerto that breathes life into each and every one of those artworks.

Music leaves the stage for poetry and takes us into the creative world of the Roland Petit & Zizi Jeanmaire collection, on sale exclusively online until 7 April.
