Post-War
  & Contemporary Art

For a number of years now, the Post-War and Contemporary Department, under the direction of Hugues Sébilleau, has been returning outstanding results with its sales of works from 1945 to today.

With 15 years experience Hugues Sébilleau, who had been providing his expertise and knowledge of the contemporary art market to Artcurial since 2004, after having spent several years with Briest Auctioneers as well as working in the finance sector.

The department benefits not only from their respective experience but also from their dedication and focus on customer service; buyers and sellers of works of art today demand ever more knowledge and information and Karim and Hugues intend to provide this to the widest range of clients possible.

The department’s aim is to promote and develop the market for French artists from different artistic movements (Abstraction, Narrative Figuration and the New Realists) alongside sales of works by significant international artists. Client focus, expertise and knowledge have meant many clients come to count on the invaluable advice the department can provide, a fact underlined by the various collections entrusted to the team - whether they be classic, such as the Jean Pollack, Claude and Micheline Renard, Jean Ferrero, Jacques and Madeleine Matarasso, Pierre Hebey or Jean Leymarie collections or those much more contemporary, such as ‘Projet Minimal’, Vincent Wapler or Michel Fedoroff.

Highlighting the qualities of a piece of art, the meticulous work undertaken before each sale and the successful attracting of new buyers have all led to an increase in the results of the department, through its 4 auctions per year. These figures have made a major a contribution to Artcurial’s position today as one of the major players on the European art market
