A few weeks ago in Paris, a large number of Hubert Le Gall's creations were auctioned by Sotheby's. It was a world breaking record auction for the artist with some of the works going for x3 and x4 the normal retail price.
The collection focused on the artworks collected by an American collector who had purchased a beautiful property in the heart of Normandy: the Manoir of Saint-Calais. The owner, a friend and patron of French artist-designer Hubert Le Gall, spent seven years bringing the domain back to its former glory. The property housed one of the most important collections of Le Gall’s singular and playful creations, which took their place alongside pieces of antique furniture, and works by David Hockney, Camille Pissarro and Allan Ramsay.
