Though it dates back to 1959, La Biennale des Antiquaires has only now become an annual event, renamed La Biennale Paris.

La Biennale Paris is now an annual event in 2017! Hosted at the historic Grand Palais, the international antiques and fine art fair has 92 confirmed prestigious exhibitors this year. A unique celebration of the French art de vivre, La Biennale Paris has been exhibition the finest works from some of the world’s most impressive galleries, antique dealers and jewelers for more than 50 years.

This year’s fair is overseen by new leadership in the Biennale Commission, Christopher Forbes, who remarked “The Paris Biennale is the most important fair of its kind in France, and one of the greatest in the world, alongside TEFAF Maastricht and the Winter Show in New York. To follow in the wake of Henri Loyrette, whom I admire deeply, is at once a privilege and an honor. I am committed to maintaining the level of excellence established by my eminent predecessors and look forward to being part of transforming this Biennale into the most brilliant edition that has ever taken place.”

La Biennale Paris will take place between September 11-17. To learn more, visit La Biennale Paris.
