What you'll do

Paris, like no other place in the world, holds an extraordinarily rich heritage and maintains strong Art&Antiques trade traditions. I will be delighted to guide you through it. During the visit we will see Drouot : a place where, since 19th century, thousands of art pieces, paintings, vintage objects and interior decors are going under the hammer on the everyday basis. You will have the possibility to assist to a few auctions, learn Drouot’ codes and rules, as well as some secrets. Together we will examine pieces of your interest upside-down and learn easy tips how not to get yourself a fake one, whether you are looking at an old bottle of wine, a vintage dress, a painting or a sculpture. After that we will visit some well-known Parisian galleries, through which you will understand the French art market better. With an expert by your side, you will immerse yourself in the fascinating world of the art market, and, who knows, maybe will end up with a vintage brand bag or a pair of design wall-lights as a souvenir of your Parisian trip.

Daria

I am a specialist in classical and decorative arts, born in Moscow and living in Paris since a long time. My passion for arts and antiques formed within the 18th century Palace museum, where I got my first work experience. Later my career oriented to the art market and made its path through several auction houses and galleries until 5 years ago I decided to start my own company of art-advisory. This business I am running so far, helping people in choosing right piece and building up their collections.
