Next meeting place:
Café Le Cardinal, 1 bvd des Italiens 75002, Métro Richlieu-Drouot.
After a discussion about what to expect at auctions, attend an auction of important modern paintings and sculptures by auctioneer Blanchet & associés (room 7). Take a look at the catalogue beforehand, and if you have time ealier in the day, feel free to drop in to take a closer look at the works before they go on sale. http://bit.ly/17i1xTk
We will book tickets in advance €35 each. If you'd like a catalogue it's better to buy it with your tickets (an additional €30), or you can buy it there for €35.
A visit to Atelier Rouart in the 16th. Former home of Berthe Morisot, given over to a contemporary art collection of works for sale, ranging in price from €350 to €80,000. Great opportunity to see a collection curated and mounted professionally.
