This connoisseur’s collection is a testament to the lively curiosity of its owner, seamlessly blending modern and post-war works with contemporary art. It explores the subtle relationship between art and the body, action and space; the forms of Germaine Richier’s sculptures are complemented by the curves of Jean Fautrier’s numerous drawings and paintings. This collection also demonstrates a taste for travel and history expressed by a beautiful selection of European sculptures, Islamic art, antiquities and Old Master drawings. These objects, separated by centuries, are here united by the aesthetic sensibilities of a connoisseur’s eye.
