Paris Tableau—the Old Master fair that closed two days early this year after the terrorist attacks in the capital on 13 November—will become part of the Biennale des Antiquaires, which will be held annually at the Grand Palais.

The 28th edition of the Biennale—the historic jewelry, art and antiques fair—is scheduled to open next autumn (10-18 September 2016) with Henri Loyrette, the former president of the Louvre, at the helm.

Paris Tableau Returns for its Second Year

Held from November 7th to 12th at the Palais de la Bourse, Paris Tableau will try to outdo last year’s inaugural show, which saw over 6,000 patrons and sold 60 major paintings.

Centered on Old Master Paintings ranging from the Middle Ages to the Second Empire, Paris Tableau was created by ten dealers – Maurizio Canesso, Hervé Aaron, Eric Coatalem, Bertrand Gautier, Bob Haboldt, Jean-François Heim, Georges de Jonckheere, Jacques Leegenhoek, Giovanni Sarti and Claude Vittet – who all share the same vision. While multi-discipline art fairs are currently commonplace, the dealers felt a fair dedicated solely to Old Masters was both needed and desired by collectors, curators, and fans.

This year’s Paris Tableau will host a loan exhibition from Le Mobilier National (The National Furniture Museum of France). Curated by Arnauld Brejon de Lavergnée, the former Director of Collections at Le Mobilier National, Hidden Treasures of the Goblins, will feature approximately 20 paintings and painted cartoons, some of which have never before been on public display. The point of the exhibition is to illustrate the link between paintings and its translation into textiles for interior use.

A festival of iconic films that thematically explore Old Master Paintings will also be part of Paris Tableau. Held from November 9th to 10th, the festival features such films as Rembrandt, Nightwatching, The Mill and the Cross, and The Girl with a Pearl Earring.
