EVENT

Paris, Biennale des antiquaires
or the 27th edition of this biennial antiques fair, the Syndicat National des Antiquaires has given carte blanche to Jacques Grange, who had
the idea to reconstruct the gardens of Versailles beneath the glass roof of the Grand Palais. To stage the project, the famous interior designer has called on the invaluable assistance of gardeners from the Chateau de Versailles. All the exhibitors will be playing along, giving their stands a real touch of "greenery". At the stand of Didier Aaron & Cie, all the furniture will be displayed on podiums forming "Jean Arp-style islands", as Jacques Grange tells us. "On one of these "islands", we will be presenting 18th century furniture and on the other islands, 19th century furniture in universal exhibition style – a predominant trend this year." Furniture, objets d'art and paintings from the 17th to the 20th centuries will be well represented. The Kraemer Gallery will be displaying 18th century pieces which have twins in prestigious international museums. For example, a Louis XV longcase clock in marquetry and wood veneering ornamented with chased gilt bronzes by the cabinetmaker Jean-Pierre Latz, commissioned by Frederick II of Prussia, has a

double in the New Palace in Potsdam, Berlin. A loyal supporter of the Biennale des Antiquaires since 1978, the Léage company is joining forces with Guillaume Féau to present 18th century works in a setting of antique wood panels with a contemporary touch, evoking the 21st century lifestyle. 20th century decorative art – particularly popular during the last edition – is another speciality being given its full due. For its first appearance, the Jean-David Botella Gallery is offering a collection of 30 mirrors by Line Vautrin, some of which have never been on the market before. The Carpenters Workshop Gallery is featuring a solo show dedicated to the American designer Wendell Castle. Completely new works especially produced for this event will be on show in a setting by Ingrid Donat. At the stand of the Michel Giraud Gallery, enthusiasts will see the only known version in bronze to date of Alfred Janniot's Torse d'Héraclès, an original bronze proof dating from 1935-1938. The only known stone version is in the collection of François Pinault. The Alain Marcelpoil Gallery, loyal to Sornay, is presenting furniture exclusively by the designer, together with copperware by Claudius Linossier. For their second participation, Céline and Fabien Mathivet are
