Cultural and cosmopolitan capital As you wish, no city shines with its unique identity like Paris. For collectors and art lovers, the multiple City of Light galleries are a unique opportunity to discover exceptional pieces. As for fairs such as the FIAC, Biennale of Antiques or even Art Elysees, they represent unmissable Parisian events, allowing the acquisition of rare pieces and the discovery of new talents and innovative artists... Notice to amateurs, here are the 3 Parisian districts not to be missed to learn about art!


Le Marais, with its maze-like streets and indefinable charm is a real creative hive! It swarms and wriggles with whole generations ofFrench and international artists who have established their exhibition spaces in formidable voluminous spaces. Around Centre Pompidou, Place des Vosges, Turenne Street and further still, we let ourselves be carried away in a poetic stroll... To see absolutely: the gallery Schwab Beaubourg. 


Le Faubourg Saint-Honore, theAvenue Matignon, Rue de Penthievre and Miromesnil Street remain the stronghold of great antique dealers and prestigious art galleries. In a spirit of tradition and renewal, art dealers with global influence have been established there for years and rub shoulders with famous foreign galleries recently established. Our favorites in the neighborhood? Nichido, multicultural at will – we discover Japanese, French and American artists – as well as that of Nicolas Bourriaud which is full of nuggets. 


It is obviously impossible to talk about art without mentioning the most emblematic district of the Left Bank : Saint-Germain-des-Prés. This one is full of Art Galeries et antique dealers which satisfy curious minds, connoisseurs of the contemporary or lovers of past beauties... Our favorites go to the very pretty Arcana gallery and Furstenberg Gallery, one of the very few in Europe specializing in pre-Columbian art.
