PARIS.- While a small selection of highlights from the personal collection of celebrated French interior designer Jacques Granges was unveiled in June, the full scope of “Jacques Grange/Collector” has been revealed today with the release of the online catalogue.

Assembled over the past 50 years, the 177 lots in the sale comprise a wonderful mix of objects from Jacques Grange’s Paris apartment overlooking the gardens of the Palais Royal, once home to the novelist Colette.

Renowned worldwide for his sophisticated taste, Jacques grange has counted Yves Saint-Laurent, Princess Caroline of Monaco, Francis Ford Coppola and Sofia Coppola, Valentino, Karl Lagerfeld and Ronald Lauder and Aerin Lauder, among his starstudded clients.

Grange himself has said that his apartment is ‘the house of a collector‘. He ‘wrote’ his collection as a travel notebook, where each piece is a memento of a trip, a discovery or a meeting. Iconic pieces of 20th design happily sit alongside photographs, contemporary art, exquisite 19th century drawings, symbolist works and vibrant ceramics.

Everything is beautifully balanced, from the minimalism of Sugimoto to the colourful flamboyance of a Damien Hirst spin painting and a David Hockney picture, from the strong green of a Buren circular frame to the turquoise shade on a Hector Guimard floor lamp.

Provenance is equally impressive, with Pierre Matisse, André Breton, Paul Eluard, Eugenia Errazuriz, René Crevel, Marie-Laure de Noailles and Yves Saint Laurent amongst the remarkable roster of names.
