The best of Denmark stops over in Paris
his is a major event at Drouot: Bruun Rasmussen, one of the top auction houses in Scandinavia, will be exhibiting some exceptional
pieces at "12 Drouot" in Paris this September, before they go on sale in Copenhagen at the end of the month. A chance to meet Frederik Bruun Rasmussen, director of this heavyweight in the European art market, based in Bredgade, one of the city's most impressive streets. "Our auction house was founded by my grandfather in 1948. When he died in 1985, my father took over. He is now in his seventies, but is still very active and regularly wields the auction hammer," he tells us. Over the decades, this family business has become the number one in Denmark, in a rather singular context. British auctio-

t

neers have offices in the country, but do not organise sales there, using their location simply to source works. This enables Bruun Rasmussen to be in close contact with their clients. Equally, the number of large auction houses has fallen over the years: "The market has changed enormously during the last twenty years," says Frederik Bruun Rasmussen. "At that time, there were around ten auction companies in Copenhagen. Today, you have to be online and find clients all over the world, or work in partnerships, otherwise you might as well shut up shop. There are only a few of us left in the capital, which is rather sad – because the more operators there are, the healthier the market is." With hammer price sales of €63 million in 2014, Bruun Rasmussen itself is on top form.
