La Biennial Paris 2017 returns at the historic Grand Palais with a lineup of 92 exhibitors from 12 countries. Whilst the galleries are mainly from Europe, the fair is also joined by a gallery from Delhi, Nirav Modi, which specialises in jewellery, and from Singapore, Singva Blue Horizon specialising in 19thcentury decorative arts.
Formerly known as the Biennale des Antiquaires and has been held every two years since it was founded in 1962, this September marks the first annual edition of the fair. It is also the first edition under the leadership of Christopher Forbes, the American publishing magnate and collector.
Art enthusiasts can marvel at various key highlights at the fair, such as Pablo Picasso’s “Anthropomorphic Landscape” at Hélène Bailly Gallery, a latticework ruby necklace and earring set at Indian diamantaire Nirav Modi and four 17th century tapestries woven with gold, created for Louis XIV’S Minister, at Galerie Chevalier.
