We had the pleasure of visiting the magnificent collection donated by Martine and Léon Cligman, exhibited at the Musée d'Art Moderne de Fontevraud, where we found a few pieces from our collection. The quality of the pieces on display and the scenography justify a visit.

Traveler, dealer, collector and self-taught researcher
Jean-Luc Cortes' contribution to the study of Western Nepalese art
par le Dr David C. Andolfatto
September 7, 2021 - 6:30 pm at Le Toit du Monde Gallery
This tribute evening will present the work of Jean-Luc Cortes for the recognition of the arts of Western Nepal. Jean-Luc Cortes, who passed away in July 2021, remains to this day one of the few Himalayan art dealers and collectors to have gone into the field, not (to our knowledge) to collect objects, but to better understand their cultural context. It is partly through the book La Statuaire Primitive de l'Ouest du Népal, published in 2011 but remained very confidential, that we will evoke the arts of this little known region of Nepal, their perception since the middle of the XXe century as well as the scientific contribution of this passionate Nepalese.
The Beaux-Arts de Paris and the galleries of Saint-Germain-des-Prés join forces to allow young graduate artists to exhibit in the original format of the showcase and offer the public a look at the young creation during the summer period.
We host Clément Courgeon
His work will be on display until September 2
