“It’s not so important that people know the stories my paintings evoke. They must feel free… allow themselves to be surprised or even shocked. On the other hand, I personally need these subjects, I question them, I work them like the words of an unknown language until they allow me to paint…” – Gérard Garouste, […]

As the new auction season begins, French Contemporary artists have got off to a sprightly start with strong demand in both Paris and New York for a number of the key figures of the French cultural scene since the 1960s and “young” French artists born after 1945.

“La Force de l’Art” opens to the public from 9 May to 25 June, bringing together fifteen exhibitions for the first of a new triennial series of shows intended to restore France to the forefront of the international art scene.

Since it reformed its auctioneers, France has increased its share of the auction market from 7% of worldwide turnover in 2001, to 8.6% in 2002. Yet growth in the wider sector has done little for the contemporary art market. France only generated 4.5% of the proceeds from contemporary artworks in 2002.

In a tense economic climate, contemporary art auctions in New York are proving stronger than modern art and impressionist art sales. The evening auctions may have been unexceptional. But Sotheby’s and Christie’s still managed some reassuring surprises, generally in the less prestigious later sessions, when prices for some artists showed real growth and some of them turned out to be impressive records.
