It is a privileged few who enjoy access to Galerie de Bayser, proprietor of some of the world’s most precious Renaissance drawings, and site of the discovery of a rare original by Leonardo da Vinci. Founded in 1936 and lodged discreetly above the courtyard of a 17th-century hôtel particulier, this light-flooded gallery is a repository of some of the most beautiful drawings and etchings from the 16th century to today.
With author and journalist Catherine Monroy at your side, you’ll see rare works of fine art and learn how they are studied and authenticated here by the four de Bayser brothers. You’ll meet Patrick de Bayser, who will recount how he discovered a $15 million da Vinci in a stack of drawings and prints. From Renaissance masterpieces to works by Degas and Delacroix, this is an unforgettable encounter in the rarefied world of fine art.
