A new exhibition space to showcase 25 emerging galleries will be introduced at France's 25th Biennale this fall. The prestigious art and antiques show, featuring 80 established art dealers and 7 leading jewellers, takes place September 15 to 22, under the dome of the Grand Palais in Paris.

Billed as a stepping stone into the Biennale, the debut display for the new dealers will be located on the balcony of the Grand Palais concurrent to the fair.

France's Syndicat National des Antiquaires invited these up-and-coming gallerists (23 French, 1 Spanish, and 1 Hungarian) to represent the future of the Biennale. Each will exhibit one artwork indicative of their specialty, including archaeology, Asian art, Islamic art, Pre-Columbian art, Oceanic art, books and manuscripts, furniture from the 18th to 20th centuries, orders of chivalry, sculpture, old master to modern paintings, and tapestries.

Joseph Mellor Hanson (1900-1963) Portrait of Five Masters - 1937-38. Oil on canvas, signed, 71,5 x 91,5 cm, from Marie Watteau.

Among the anticipated items will be a 3rd century B.C. Hellenistic statue of a woman (Antoine Tarantino), an 18th-century Beauvais tapestry titled "La Collation du Prince" (Emmanuelle Hadjer), and an Important Court Lady called “Fat Lady” with a mirror, which is a Tang Dynasty terracotta figure (Eric Pouillot).

There is also a strong set of dealers devoted to 20th-century fine and decorative arts. For one, Marie-Alexandrine Yvernault will present a Surrealist chair made by Fabio de Sanctis in 1963.
