S otheby’s is honoured to present a series of auctions from the Collection of Dorothée Lalanne, daughter of François-Xavier and Claude Lalanne, the legendary couple famous for their sculptures of nature and animals.

The sale presents a remarkable number of iconic unpublished works by François-Xavier and Claude Lalanne with wonderful provenance. The fact that they all come from Dorothée Lalanne’s own personal collection makes the selection even more special.

It is a privilege to be able to present works that sum up the realm of Les Lalanne so perfectly, two worlds in perfect harmony. Additionally, most of these pieces have never been seen on the market.
