Once again I had the opportunity to be represented by the Van Gogh art gallery, based in Madrid, at the international exhibition of contemporary art, this time in Paris. The art3f concept, which focuses on direct contact between new European artistic production and art lovers, is very popular with the public.
The predominantly private initiative art3f has a deep understanding of the art market thanks to its experience in organizing international contemporary art fairs.
Of course, in addition to being at the exhibition, I was lucky enough to coincide with the coating of the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, and I went to see it. It was actually one of Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s first dreams: to completely cover the Arc de Triomphe.
Under the name L’Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped and a year and a half after Christo’s death. In 2020, Christo planned to carry out this work that he began to develop 60 years ago. However, the artist passed away in May 2020 leaving a legacy that is still alive. In fact, Christo and Jeanne-Claude always made it clear that their works of art will live on after their death and, although they are ephemeral, many of them have been perpetuated over time in different ways.
