Our colleagues at Sotheby's are proud to welcome some of the unique works from the Hélène Leloup collection and the Highlights from the Old Masters sales from 30 May to 2 June.

On Tuesday 30 May, we were delighted to host the opening cocktail of the exhibitions “Collection Hélène Leloup Vol. 1, Paris” and “Highlights of the July Old Master Paintings auctions in London” featuring Oceanic and African pieces and paintings from Brueghel, Rubens and Jordaens.

Born in 1927, Hélène Leloup is one of the art world’s true pioneers. Her adventurous spirit, detailed anthropological approach and in-depth knowledge have enabled her to become one of the leading specialists in African and Oceanic art in Paris, New York and beyond.
