An Insight into the Intimate Thoughts of Degas, Le Corbusier and other 20th Century Greats

London 4th June 2020

Artists throughout the ages have kept sketchbooks, capturing the seeds of ideas and creating a diary of their thoughts and reflections. In this episode of Expert Voices, discover how the idea of being closer to the innermost thoughts of artists led collector Albin Schram and his wife Anne Bibot to amass an extraordinary collection of sketches by some of the most important artists of the 20th century. Schram’s astute taste is presented in our upcoming sale ‘The Artist’s Sketchbook: Where Inspiration Finds Form’ (22 May - 4 June). Highlights include art historical jewels with fascinating stories to tell by the likes of Le Corbusier, Edgar Degas, Paul Klee, Emil Nolde and Félix Vallotton.
