EXHIBITIONLes Lalanne à Monaco Summer Edit : Joaillerie, Horlogerie et Sacs à main
For its first exhibition, set to open on 4th July, for Monaco Art Week and just ahead of artmonte-carlo, Sotheby’s has gathered a selection of important works from private collections by two artists who will already be familiar to visitors to Monaco: Claude and François-Xavier Lalanne. Beloved for using nature and animals as inspiration for their creations, the Lalannes’ works can already be discovered on public display across the city, but this summer a host of further pieces will be available to enjoy at Sotheby’s too. Visitors will be treated to 17 of the artists’ most famous works, including a flock of FrancoisXavier’s famous sheep, bronze pigeons, hedgehogs, hares, goats, antelopes, lily pads, and birdshaped chairs in aluminum. All are available for private sale.
Alongside the Lalanne exhibition, Sotheby’s will present a curated show of jewels, handbags and watches available for immediate purchase, including a special offering of pieces by VANLELES Diamonds and Sotheby’s Diamonds.
