Editorial

Everyone knows that Paris will always be Paris… just as it will always be the capital of the tribal art. As the years go by, the City of Light has maintained its rank in the speciality, offering collectors from all over the world pieces from outstanding provenances like the Ivory Coast "Gonate" mask of the Bete people, once owned by Paul Guillaume and then Charles Ratton, sold last December for €605,218 at Drouot (Wapler Mica). With a result of €11 M, the sale staged by Sotheby's in June yet again confirmed Paris as a leading marketplace – one that benefits every year from the glowing reputation of an outdoor art fair: the Parcours des Mondes, which in fourteen years has become an international event. For a little under a week, the top galleries – 84 to be precise, with over half coming from outside France – are providing access to their selections. A new feature this year is the focus on Asia: "a natural development reflecting the growing interest of collectors and dealers," according to Parcours director Pierre Moos

In totalling €1,403,382, the Jean Patou sale was a celebration of the collector, of course, but even more of the designer, whose clothes and fragrances alike intoxicated the bidding.
