Furniture
  & Works of Art

Since its creation in 2009, when Isabelle Bresset joined Artcurial as auctioneer and Associate director, the Furniture and Works of Art department established itself as one of the key players in this field in France.

The department ability to grant back central stage to classical decorative arts, rewarded by the growing recognition from sellers and buyers alike, has been pivotal for the department’s success. Each collection is unique and the team is enthusiastically taking care of them with a great attention to detail.

Offering a large spectrum reflecting the rich variety of European decorative arts, from the austere solemnity of the Haute Epoque until the eclecticism of the late 19th century, without forgetting the classical and Baroque 17th century or the frivolous or Neoclassical 18th century, the sales enjoy renewed success twice a year despite the current change in fashion.

The department focuses on the strict and scrupulous selection of the works offered on sale, their realistic valuation, the peculiar attention given their valorisation and the customised service provided to first time buyers or experienced collectors from all over the world.

The department has conveyed a contemporary and fresh image through unprecedented collaborations with art world leading figures and interior designers while making sure we do provide a reliable expertise.

The collaboration with well-known experts and art historians to ensure a thorough, rigorous and solid knowledge in the appraisal process for works of art such as silver, sculptures, clocks and scientific instruments, European ceramics or rugs, enables us to cover every aspects and handle every kind of collection.
