THE FIRST INTERNATIONAL APPOINTMENT OF FINE and WORKS OF ARTS EXPERTISE & ART MARKET
The CNES (Chambre Nationale des Experts Spécialisés en Objets d'Art), one of the major representatives of French expertise, has created in 2017 a completely novel fair at the Grand Palais, to highlight this sector which is so essential to the protection, security, identification and the commerce of cultural objects.
The SOA will thus be an original event, unlike the shows that are restricted to antique dealers. So it must make reference to the strictest criteria of authenticity and truth, as to the objects presented. This decision has been particularly well received by all of the cultural sector, and it's leaders have, from the outset, understood the message that the CNES intended.
For its first edition, in April 2017, at the Grand Palais, this new event became the appointment for the International Art Collectors and Amateurs.
More than 200 exhibitors, booksellers, experts and art dealers of authentic works of art were pleased to welcome more than 20.000 visitors.
