The Legendary Auctioneer De Pury Gets Back to Fine Art Business

One of the hundred most influential people in the fine art business, the former head of the Phillips de Pury Auction House (known as Phillips), the Swiss collector and auctioneer Simon de Pury has announced his return to the art market. He is going to say a new word in the auction business by organizing a series of singles sales based on the new online auction platform along with “physical” exhibitions in London and New York. The first sale including 400 objects from the Lambert Art Collection (LAC) will be held on October 12, 2015.

At the auction entitled “A Visual Odyssey: Selections from LAC” will be presented modern art objects and other works of the modern era together with antique furniture and fine art works of the 18th and 19th centuries. French designer Jacques Grange will stage the exhibition in London “in a playful free style” mixing paintings, photographs, and furnishings. In this way, paintings by Christopher Wool will coexist with Chinese furniture, design of the 30s – with humorous works by Richard Prince, and contemporary art works – with masterpieces by French cabinetmakers of the 18th century. The exhibition will be available for visitors two weeks before the auction at Mallett’s Dover Street headquarters. Moreover, due to the digital catalogs de Pury plans to reduce the fees charged to the buyers. So if you are going to buy something unique, Fine Art Shippers will be happy to provide the best shipping services at affordable prices.
