Paris and Online, 12-27 November


English | Français


Classic Week in Paris presents a series of four live and online auctions, featuring rare furniture, paintings, sculptures and decorative works of art from the 16th century to the present day.

On 24 November, The Collector: Le Goût Français celebrates the art of collecting, bringing a selection of works from private French and European collections. Highlights include pieces by the biggest names in 20th-century design, including Bagues, Jansen, Henri Samuel and Georges Geffroy. Swiftly following is The Exceptional Sale, with extraordinary examples of prestigious provenance, rarity and craftsmanship.

Alongside this, two online auctions will complement our regular offerings in the Paris saleroom. Bidding for The Collector: Paris Online opens 13–26 November, while French painter, design and sculptor Louis Cane’s furniture and works of art are available from 12 November onwards.
