Serious collectors head to the second arrondissement in search of Old Master drawings. Launched in 1936 by Patrick and Rose-Anne de Bayser, Galerie de Bayser remains the go-to gallery for aficionados and institutions looking to buy or appraise rare European works, dating back to the 16th century up to 20th century. Its access and acumen are regarded as impeccable: the gallery’s experts work with a network of more than 100 auctioneers. The gallery is located in a historic hotel particulier (grand, freestanding city home) built in 1674 for the Marquis de Louvois, Louis XiV’s French Secretary of State for War.
