UNE NOUVELLE BELLE ÉPOQUE

Signaling une nouvelle belle époque
in terms of art-fair cachet and global elegance, the 25th Biennale des Antiquaires
debuted in Paris, Sept. 15-22, 2010, in the vast 19th-century cast iron and glass Grand Palais. The fair is orchestrated this year by the redoubtable Hervé Aaron, who heads up the Syndicat National des Antiquaires
, the prestigious French dealer organization (and who also operates Didier Aaron
galleries, founded by his father, in both London and New York).
