The French Connection – Cy Twombly and François Halard | In The Studio

Paris | 9 – 29 October 2023

This season, in partnership with CELINE, Sotheby’s is honoured to invite two masters of the Art world within its walls, namely Galerie Chenel, which specialises in the trade of Antiquities, and celebrated photographer, François Halard, to pay homage to the art and personality of Cy Twombly. Both Chenel and Halard share decades of eclectic taste and passionate engagement for Antiquities.

The distinguished photographer François Halard joins this exhibition with a curated selection of photographs he took of Cy Twombly in Gaeta (1994-1995) and Bassano (2021) where the artist used to live and work. Twombly and his Antique marble collection are sublimated by Halard’s search for the unspeakable given by an image.
