Also, the market barometer, the American collectors and museums, went back to very numerous and were of enthusiastic.
Delon collects Rembrandt

The drawings, specializing in contemporary Sammlerpaar Daniel and Florence Guerlain donates a prize for the third time a candidate for the German Thomas Mueller, and especially with Conrad in Dusseldorf issued Belgian Catharina van Eetvelde and Frenchman Dove Allouche.
Since the parallel to the "Salon" organized exhibitions of contemporary drawings Topgalerien attract more international, the "Salon du dessin expanded" since 2009 its temporal extension of up to contemporary art.

Talabardon & Gautier already gave off a lovely water color: a by Alphonse de Labrou painted portrait on ivory of Caspar David Friedrich.
