La Bi­en­nial Paris 2017 brings to­gether a myr­iad of highly cov­eted mas­ter­pieces rang­ing from fine jew­ellery, ta­pes­tries and paint­ings

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.
