The 2020 Symposium on the Arts of France

La Côte d’Azur · Le Grand Style de Riviera

As much as we adore Paris and all she has to offer, let’s travel south, to the Côte d’Azur where the Sun stains the stucco and dances on the beautiful sea. Art, auctions and tragedy all on the land where artists, royalty and socialites created the culture and ambiance we will explore in Spring 2020. Dates to be determined.

Here is an example of our Symposium last year:
