How and why does one collect historical French art in 21st-century America? Distinguished Los Angeles private collectors Alex Bouzari and Lionel Sauvage join Alan Salz of the French dealer house Didier Aaron and Getty curators Lee Hendrix and Edouard Kopp for a lively panel discussion about the motivations, pleasures, and challenges—both personal and professional—of collecting. The conversation addresses sourcing, selecting, acquiring, and displaying works of art (drawings, paintings, decorative arts) in the context of a public museum and a private collection. Panelists share their common passion for French art, each from their respective points of view—curator, collector, dealer—blending personal experience with some sense of historical perspective. Complements the exhibition Rococo to Revolution: 18th-Century French Drawings from Los Angeles Collections on view at the Getty Center through September 21, 2014.
