19th Century Spirit

Located in the heart of the forest, where the artists of Barbizon school planted their easels in the early nineteenth century, it was natural that Osenat dedicated them, for now 30 years, three auction sales, now followed by collectors of the whole world.

In recent years, these sales have been, in addition to a large selection of paintings and drawings by large and small masters of the Barbizon school, representative works of the various currents, illustrated in the nineteenth century, under the name of " L’Esprit du XIXe siècle”. Romanticism, Realism, Impressionism ... We would like to represent all the founding currents of this era so prolific in paintings.

Closing of each sale 1 month before its date.
