I would like to begin by thanking you for your continuing loyalty and the trust you are placing in us year after year. Your confidence bears witness to the competence of our teams which successfully organized this first semester over thirty live auctions in many specialties: Modern and Contemporary Art, Old Master Paintings, 20th Century Decorative Arts, 17th to 19th Century Furniture and Decorative Arts, Asian Art, Islamic Art, Jewellery, Watches, Antiquities, Wines and Spirits, Comics, etc. At Tajan, we differentiate ourselves by combining successfully an overall business approach which complies with the highest level of international standards and requirements, with a highly personalized service and strict attention to details. Although our clientele and operations tend to be increasingly global, we still remain faithful to our tradition as a leading French auction house. Ideally located in the heart of Paris, our beautiful Art Deco “Hôtel Particulier” attracts collectors from all over the world. They appreciate our special blend of professional competence and beautifully curated exhibitions which present the artworks to their best advantage. Our strong global image of a “high end boutique” auction house gives our clientele access to a far reaching network of diversified buyers and sellers. As we continually strive to meet your expectations, we plan to reinforce our digital presence by developing a wide variety of online auctions. As a passionate collector of Modern and Contemporary Art and Design, in addition to our well-established auction business, I also place increasing efforts to make TAJAN a destination place for discovery and defense of art. At TAJAN ARTSTUDIO, we host innovative cultural events and bring together all those who create, defend and love art: artists, collectors, curators and gallerists. I look forward to welcome you soon at Tajan."
