Collectors and curators alike came in droves to browse the event’s 33 booths. Benjamin Peronnet sold a 16th-century red chalk drawing by Franciabigio (1482-1525), among others, Applicat-Prazan sold a work by Hans Hartung and London’s Waddington Custot Gallery found a home for a pastel by Picasso and a collage by Peter Blake. There was also some movement online, with the digital sector hosting several foreign galleries, including the Netherlands’ Onno Van Seggelen, whose Hermaphrodite by Carel de Nerée tot Babberich attracted a keen eye, and the Rijksmuseum, which bought a watercolor-enhanced drawing by the Symbolist artist.
