Following the success of last years Pop-Up exhibitions of Fine Art and Luxury Sotheby’s has now moved permanently to its new quarters at 20 avenue de la Costa.

Sotheby’s first opened in Monaco in 1967 and was the first international auction house to organize public sales in Monaco in 1975. Many sales were held here until the opening of the art market in France, ending 400-year monopoly of French auctioneers.

Since 1998, Sotheby’s Monaco’s team, directed by Mark Armstrong, keeps forging special ties with Monegasque collectors by including works from their collection in major international sessions in Paris, London, Geneva, Hong Kong and New York.

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.
