announced the arrival of Louis Grandchamp des Raux, who has integrated the auction house team since 1st June 2017. Henceforth, he will be Artcurials exclusive International Consultant, working in close collaboration with Matthieu Fournier, Artcurials associate director.
While Louis Grandchamp des Raux is perfectly acquainted with the art market, in particular ancient paintings, his expertise goes beyond the speciality. Today, he places his experience and network of first-rate collectors in a position to promote Artcurials development. He thus achieves a 30-year-old dream, to move to the other side of the gavel, becoming a major player in the market. He will continue to nourish his passion for art by helping collectors to establish a collection, but also to separate from their paintings in the best conditions.
« It is with an immense pleasure that we welcome Louis to Artcurial ! We met him as a collector, while he was attending our exhibitions and our sales, then learned to know us more personally during the sale of his collection that we organised in 2015. He became our friend. What better ambassador for our House that an internationally recognised collector, passionate and scholarly, who can share his selling and buying experience with other collectors. » Matthieu Fournier, Associate Director, Ancient masters and 19th century department, Artcurial
« By joining Artcurial, I finally reconcile my career as an entrepreneur and my love of art, which were cohabitating for 30 years! To become a part of Artcurials prestige throughout Europe is an exciting challenge. My foremost desire is to share my passion and my history, in particular by guiding collectors in their cultural and artistic endeavours. » Louis Grandchamp des Raux, International Consultant, Artcurial
