PARIS.- More than 90 iconic works from 42 international galleries will be presented in an unprecedented online auction with an overall estimate of 7 to 10 million euros.

La Biennale Paris and Christie’s will present an online auction involving 42 international dealers from 8 different countries. This unprecedented sale, featuring 91 works of art in a dozen disciplines, will be held online from September 24 to October 8, 2020 on the Christie’s website.

The works in this sale reflect the diversity and unique nature of La Biennale Paris. All of these objects - paintings, artworks and pieces of furniture from around the world, created by the finest masters, artists and craftsmen of their day, and spanning nearly 6,000 years of art history: from archaeology to modern sculpture, from 16th- to 19th-century antique furniture to contemporary design; from 16th-century Old Master paintings to 20th-century abstract art; from jewelry to watchmaking – have been carefully selected by the participating dealers and Christie’s specialists.

Georges De Jonckheere, President of La Biennale Paris, notes: “The remarkable selection of high-quality, rare, and astonishing pieces is testament to gallerists’ tremendous enthusiasm for this innovative event. The sale reflects our ambitions for La Biennale in 2021, due to take place in the Grand Palais Ephémère, where we will have the great pleasure of meeting again.”

Cécile Verdier, President of Christie’s France adds: “The discussions between the dealers and the specialists have resulted in a selection which perfectly illustrates the variety in the market today. I am very impressed by the accomplishments of all of the teams at La Biennale, the Syndicat National des Antiquaires and Christie’s, who have worked tirelessly on this ambitious project. I am convinced that this sale will be a great success, confirming the relevance and modernity of this collaboration and sending an extremely positive signal to the art market.”

This unprecedented sale will take place via a digital platform specially set up by the Christie’s teams for this auction, a platform that will be unveiled in phases as of September 10 on Christie’s website.

Several different guidelines have been devised to help clients navigate the catalogue of the sale. This system places great emphasis on participating galleries by encouraging collectors to liaise with both the Christie’s specialists and the dealers: the works will be presented on virtual exhibition booths whilst the galleries can be located thanks to an interactive map.

Clients will be able to engage in a direct conversation with dealers through a digital guestbook – all innovations specifically developed for this pioneering sale.
