La Biennale des Antiquaires

I arrived in Paris just in time for the closing weekend of the Biennale des Antiquaires. Since its founding in 1962, the Biennale has presented the beautiful works of art in the most sumptuous settings. This year's exhibit, held in the Grand Palais, featured nearly 150 dealers. It was the largest gathering in the past several years - a good sign for the art market and global economy. In 2010, for example, there were only 86 dealers.

The space, designed by legendary couturier Karl Lagerfeld, paid hommage to the streets of Paris. The galleries featured everything from Elizabeth Taylor's jewelry at Bulgari to Monet paintings at Richard Green.

More to come...
