Saturday 10 September–Sunday 18 September 2016
Mullany is pleased to announce that this September we will be exhibiting for the second time at one of the most spectacular art and antiques fairs in the world today – the Biennale des Antiquaires set in the magnificent surrounds of the Grand Palais in Paris. Having participated in 2012, Mullany returns for the 28th edition of the fair and the first of what will now be, the current name notwithstanding, an annual event on the international calendar.
Conceived in 1956 as a celebration of beauty, luxury and lifestyle, the Biennale des Antiquaires has long been recognised for hosting the most prestigious international art and antique dealers specialising in a wide selection of the finest objects. Organised by the S.N.A. (Syndicat National des Antiquaires Négociants en Objets d'Art Tableaux anciens et modernes de France), exhibitors have been invited to participate this year following the most rigorous of selection procedures overseen by an independent international committee chaired by Mr Henri Loyrette, former Director of the Musee du Louvre. All invitees are members of the S.N.A. guaranteeing the authenticity and quality of the works presented.
The carefully conceived scenography by stage designer Nathalie Crinière will compliment a superb cross section of artworks of the highest quality. On display under the iconic glass roof amongst a magical setting of pavilions, gardens and fountains will be a breath taking selection of objects including sculpture and works of art from all periods, archaeological rarities, armour, furniture, old master paintings, European and oriental porcelain, silver, tribal art, books, tapestries, coins, medals and jewellery all of which have been the subject of strict vetting criteria. Presented for the first time also will be three exceptional museum exhibitions: highlights from the Hermitage Museum and the Musée du Mobilier National, as well as a tribute to the history of the measurement of time from the sundial to contemporary complicated mechanisms curated by La Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie, Genève. With a renewed focus on art and antiques and less emphasis on haute joaillerie than in recent years, 123 exhibitors from 14 countries and an anticipated 100,000 visitors including museum curators and collectors from around the globe, the 2016 edition of the fair promises to be a truly outstanding showcase of the finest quality objects in an atmosphere of elegance, refinement and celebration.
We look forward to welcoming you on our stand N03 situated in the Nave in the first aisle on the right hand side as you enter the Grand Palais.
