About us

FauveParis is an auction house located in the upper Marais in Paris since 2014. A team of 10 people welcomes you from Tuesday to Saturday in a 750m2 living space.

FauveParis estimates and appraises your possessions, on site or at home, and carries out your inventories. A public auction is held every Saturday morning at 10.30am, preceded by a week-long exhibition of the goods for sale, open to all.

Specialized in fine arts, decorative arts and art of living, FauveParis owes its name to the Fauve artists (Matisse, Derain, Vlaminck, Braque, Dufy, etc.) who, at the beginning of the 20th century, distinguished themselves by their audacity and their desire to radically renew their discipline.
