🎨The Major vs. Minor Art debate, or how to get into a fight with your old friends… 🤯

By expert's tip
08th may 2024, by Patrick DENNY, art advisor & art dealer

During a French TV show in 1986, when the presenter Bernard Pivot was singing praises of Serge Gainsbourg, the latter grumpily retorted that his songs were nothing but minor art

This immediately got Guy Béart (singer-songwriter and father of actress Emmanuelle Béart), who was present on the set, all worked up: for him, songwriting was necessarily major art since it could outlive its author!

🕰️ An Age-Old Debate...

The debate is very old. For centuries, people have been trying to define major vs. minor art.

Before the Renaissance, the arts of knowledge (major) were distinguished from the arts of materials (minor). In other words, intellectual activities were differentiated from those of craftsmanship (applied arts).

Or put another way: concept vs. craftsmanship…

And this differentiation persisted until the mid-20th century:

• The major arts were therefore considered to be: painting, sculpture, architecture, engraving

• The minor arts were: jewelry, crystal work, goldsmithing, ceramics

In fact, during the industrial revolution, the Frecnh Academy distinguished “les Beaux Art”* in english Fine Arts (with capital letters) from decorative arts (in lowercase).

*to refer to major arts

🏙️ ...which Gets Murkier Over Time!

The boundary blurred a bit with the emergence of new materials in major arts.

Also with the system of reproducing works. For example, Andy Warhol extensively used lithography to reproduce works in multiple copies even though, by definition, a major art piece should be unique! But one could argue that a numbered lithograph is closer to an artwork “in its conception” than to a manufacturing craft.

Some movements of the 20th century even attempted to merge the two arts, outright disregarding the idea of clearly delineating them.

This was the case with Russian Constructivism (1917), which merged with the Bauhaus of Weimar & Gropius (1919) and later with the Memphis movement in 1980. These three movements shared a common goal of conceptual and aesthetic research applied to everyday consumer products.

The Bauhaus school launched a powerful movement that was to change the course of art history, considerably influencing graphic design, architecture and interior and furniture design.

🎮 Today, Everything is Art!

There are currently 10 categories of art, from painting to comics, through photography or fashion, and even video games:

In November 2012, the Museum of Modern Art in New York (MoMA) decided to include 14 video games in its collection of artworks. Similarly, since 2011, the Supreme Court of the United States officially recognizes video games as an art…

The classification of art has become chaotic, in the sense that chaos is the expression of what is undifferentiated and without hierarchy. One could notice the paradox if one were interested in the etymological origin of the word “hierarchy”, which in Greek hieros means “sacred” and archie means “command”.

Indeed, the major arts have long dealt with religious subjects, therefore sacred, and the Church would not have appreciated if a Botticelli virgin was called minor art, so there was a certain sense in “hierarchizing”!

🔍 It is therefore up to each individual to specify their own definition

Emmanuel Radnitsky, known as Man Ray (American painter, photographer, and filmmaker naturalized French), once said:

“A bad painter is and will always remain minor whereas a brilliant photographer can become a major representative of a trend or an era.”

So let those who enjoy it, replay the quarrel between the ancients and the moderns forever…

…and to the extreme, for some artists, there is not even a debate: everything would be good for the trash!

Serge Gainsbourg, whom I mentioned in the introduction for example. Did you know that he tried his hand at painting for decades? With a certain talent, it seems. And yet, like some major artists, he was never satisfied with his works to the point of almost destroying them all during his lifetime. And even when asked about his songs, he replied with disarming sincerity that he would only save 2 or 3 from the lot!

🔚 The Last Word

This reminds me of Alberto Giacometti who confessed just before he died that he had tirelessly created the same structure of his walking man, because he hadn’t finished with it and hadn’t achieved what he wanted.

Perhaps we are touching here on a definition of major art: creative doubt, creative demand, the search for creative perfection of an idea, humility.

This definition certainly has nothing academic about it, but I like it.

It’s up to you to write your own, with the eyes of a poet, whose Greek root means… creator!

How Banksy influences the art market through good marketing? 🤔🧠

By Article
18th march 2024, by Patrick DENNY, art advisor & art dealer

A new twist in Street-Art on Monday 18 March 2024!

Banksy has confirmed on his Instagram account that he is the author of the green drips sprayed on the wall of a building near Finsbury Park (London).

This time it’s an optical illusion, and you have to step back and choose the right axis to understand that the green paint is intended to replace the non-existent foliage of the tree in the foreground of the image.

Once again, to avoid having his works stolen or auctioned off, Banksy has interwoven the work into its environment, making it inseparable from it.

And as usual, the visual impact is powerful, giving us food for thought about how little space is given to nature in our cities. The representation of the young girl sends a message to the new generation, who have the power and the duty to save our planet!


The posture of the “most famous of the anonymous” is ambiguous. While he may appear to be a committed creative protestor, he is paradoxically at the pinnacle of the speculative art market he claims to denounce.

Banksy is first and foremost a graffiti artist, and expresses his art in the street, usually using stencils. Banksy conveys simple codes, reduced to very few colors. The location is predetermined and deliberate. Anyone can understand the meaning and appreciate it.

But talent alone does not guarantee notoriety! And fame is nothing without visibility!

Banksy understands this very well, and is perfectly familiar with the media and the mechanical, predictable way they work. In less than 24 hours, the photo of his latest work posted on Instagram has already racked up over 1.5 million “likes”. He is a master of viral marketing, and his successful campaigns are paradoxically a denunciation of the media buzz to which he is subjected. By taking on the codes and mechanics of “classic” marketing, Banksy delights in hijacking them to make his point, and has become a major player in the media sphere.


Using classic and effective techniques such as :

1. The secrecy surrounding his identity

“Invisibility is a superpower”, Banksy once said.

He adds, in his book Guerre et Spray (2005): “No one ever listened to me, until no one knew who I was”.

Anonymity plays a central role in Banksy’s approach; the Briton knows how to play with the grey areas surrounding his identity, and multiplies false leads. From famous people (Robert del Naja, Jamie Hewlett, etc.) to a collective of activist artists, the rumours surrounding Banksy continue to spread… and contribute to the global buzz.

So is he an individual in his own right? Or a collective? It doesn’t really matter, as long as he continues to thrill us!

2. Scandal, as in this work in which British politicians become chimpanzees

“Devolved Parliament” is an oil on canvas created in 2009 by Banksy, replacing British politicians debating in the House of Commons with chimpanzees. In 2019, the artwork became Banksy’s most expensive to date, selling for around €12 million at Sotheby’s in London.

The work measures 2.5m × 4.2m. It was entitled “Question Time” when it was first shown at the 2009 Banksy exhibition at the Bristol Museum & Art Gallery. It was sold to a private collector in 2011. A reworked and renamed version of the painting was exhibited in Bristol in March 2019, with changes to details such as a banana and some lamps. Banksy commented, “Laugh now, but one day no one will be in charge”.

The depiction of chimpanzees echoes Banksy’s 2002 work “Laugh Now”, an almost 2 metre long stencil work showing a row of monkeys wearing aprons with the inscription “Laugh now, but one day we’ll be in charge”.

Chimpanzees are a recurring theme in Banksy’s work, as a satirical device in the monkey tradition that depicts apes imitating human behaviour. Examples include his Self-Portrait (2000} which shows a person holding aerosol cans but with a chimpanzee head, and Monkey Queen (2003) based on a portrait of Elizabeth II with a chimpanzee face.

3. Or the novelty: where for the first time a work was created live from an auction.

The work “Girl With Balloon” renamed “Love is in the Bin” is an artistic intervention by Banksy created in 2018 at Sotheby’s London. According to Sotheby’s, it is “the first work of art in history to be created live at auction”. His 2006 painting, Girl with a Balloon, unexpectedly self-destructed immediately after being sold at auction. The damaged painting was subsequently renamed Love is in the Bin. It has been on permanent loan to the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart since March 2019. In October 2021, it sold at auction for £18,582,000, a new record for the artist.

In fact, it’s even pleasing to note that not everyone appreciates the same things, as it saves us from fighting relentlessly to acquire them. Diversity is a beautiful thing!

This work is an adaptation of Banksy’s 2002 mural “Girl With Balloon”, a series of prints limited to 600 copies. Today, this single copy of the series has become a unique work of art! It was a gift from Banksy to a friend shortly after the “Barely Legal” exhibition in 2006. Banksy said he had prepared the self-destruct mechanism at the time, in case the work ever came up for auction.


Banksy, the ambassador of a movement now recognized!

Since the 90s, Banksy’s work has spread to every continent, and he has succeeded in breaking traditional art codes by introducing subversive and socially committed elements into public space. His work has made a significant contribution to the democratization of urban art, shifting the public gaze from institutional art to the street, where art becomes accessible to all, without social barriers.

The cultural impact of street art, as represented by Banksy, is profound and diverse. By democratizing urban art and creating conversations about social and political issues, Banksy has shaped a new era in which art is no longer confined to galleries, but becomes an integral part of the urban fabric and collective consciousness. And, paradoxically, more and more galleries are offering street art, which is a far cry from the early underprivileged tagging of the 70s and 80s.


As always with Banksy, the answers are less important than the questions.

One thing’s for sure: with each new intervention, he moves the whole planet, and single-handedly helps to promote urban art, which in less than 10 years has gone from “vandal” to “saleable” status.

Our consumer society has transformed the way we look at art to such an extent that a recent study by the famous auction house Drouot revealed our tendency to treat a work of art as a decorative element that should match the colours of our walls or the style of our furniture. In this way, a painting becomes a consumer good that we will tire of over time, just as we tire of clothes that we wear according to the fashions of the moment.

Yet the artist wanted to express something with his work. He didn’t create it with our home décor in mind. His approach is personal and authentic, and above all it speaks to our hearts.


Buying a work of art is like starting a love affair. You need feelings, emotions and the desire to love.

And it all starts with an encounter, somewhere in an exhibition or gallery, and then the magic happens!

You risk changing your décor more than once in your life, moving house or changing the colour of your walls and furniture, whereas a work of art should be able to follow you all your life, guiding you, taking you on a journey, making your everyday life less monotonous and more inspiring. So choose a work of art for the emotion it evokes in you, not for its brilliance or style. If the emotion is genuine, the work will evolve with you and its symbolism will change over time, without ever boring you. In the longer term, you may even change your décor to reflect the paintings, photographs and sculptures that surround you.

“The real purpose of art is not to create beautiful objects: it is a method of thinking, a way of understanding the universe and finding one’s place in it”. – Paul Auster, American novelist


First, you need to ask yourself what emotion the work makes you feel. To answer this question, take the time to observe it, admire it, and understand its composition and subject matter. What did the artist want to express? Why this colour rather than another? What details add importance to the subject? Is the light soft, strong or contrasting? When you come face to face with the work, you’ll have the feeling that you’ve made it your own, since the symbolism that emerges will come solely from your eyes and the intimacy of your subjectivity.

Next, ask yourself whether the emotion you feel is linked to a memory, a person you care about, an event that has marked your life, a scar from the past, a subject that is close to your heart, a thread that speaks to you or is linked to other works that you already own.

If you are able to associate your emotions with something that is important to you, it goes without saying that the work will be able to live with you for a long time. Especially if you learn to develop a relationship with it, to look at it from every angle, to rediscover it as the seasons change and as your mood takes you. You might be surprised by the new details you discover over time, details that you’ll grow attached to.


If you’ve fallen in love with one, you don’t even have to think about it: you can just go ahead and buy it.

If you have several favourites and you don’t know where to start? Go for a small format or an edition and see how this work transforms your everyday life. It will then be easier to choose a second, and then a third work, once you’ve experienced the world of an artist at your side.


The more you observe the work of artists you like, the more you’ll learn to recognise what makes you tick, and therefore to get to know yourself. Appreciation of a work of art is very personal. Don’t choose a painting just to impress your guests! Surround yourself with what makes you dream! This will make the interior of your home more authentic and unique, just like you.

Finally, understanding a work of art is a long process that could take several years. In fact, it could take a lifetime. You’ll grow older, you’ll change, and so will the way you look at the things around you. Your relationship with your painting or sculpture will evolve just as much, and that’s the magic of art!

The end!

🎨10 stereotypes about Contemporary Art💡

By expert's tip
20th february 2024, by Patrick DENNY, art advisor & art dealer

“Contemporary art is for the wealthy,” “A 5-year-old could do that”… Who hasn’t encountered these clichés during a visit to an exhibition or museum? I must admit, I had the same reactions before delving deeper into this universe. Here are 10 misconceptions about contemporary art that you’ll soon be able to dismiss with a flick of the wrist…


Well, isn’t it reduced to just one type then?

If there’s one undeniable characteristic of contemporary art, it’s its diversity and its impossibility to be uniformly defined.

Saying “I don’t like contemporary art” would imply knowing ALL its facets, which is simply impossible given the multitude of works, styles, and movements that coexist. Furthermore, tastes evolve over time, promising delightful surprises!


This misconception is undoubtedly one of the most widespread concerning contemporary art.

However, it often forgets that behind every work is an artist, a labor, a carefully considered artistic approach. So, invite these sceptics to approach the works, to read the accompanying labels, to browse exhibition catalogs, and to learn about the artist.

If they persist in their belief that they can do just as well, or even better, encourage them to give it a try! Who knows, there may be an artist lurking within them?


Let’s be honest, if you’re looking for a work by Andy Warhol or Jeff Koons, you’ll probably have to break the bank.

However, it’s important to note that “contemporary” art also encompasses emerging artists, which means more accessible prices!

There are so many talented artists, few or not yet known, who offer their works starting from a few hundred euros for editions. We offer them too!


Believing that contemporary art is reserved for snobs is an illusion. Certainly, “snobbish” people are interested in art, and certainly art can be perceived as primarily accessible to a social and intellectual elite. However, art is much more than that!

By its very essence, it is universal and indefinable, touching all social classes, crossing epochs and cultures.

There’s something for everyone and for every taste. If you still hear that art is reserved for snobs, invite these sceptics to explore galleries and museums. That will make one less snobby visitor!


This question instantly takes us back to our old philosophy classes. If a work doesn’t seem beautiful to us, it’s simply because it doesn’t touch us, and we’re not receptive to it.

But that’s not a big deal! Beauty is, by its very essence, relative and subjective.

If a work doesn’t appeal to us, we just need to move on and explore what other artists have to offer. In fact, it’s even gratifying to see that not everyone appreciates the same things, because it saves us from relentlessly fighting to acquire them.

Diversity is a beautiful thing!


Many wrongly believe that you need a certain expertise to understand contemporary art.

However, unlike learning a language which requires a thorough study to master its subtleties, the language of art appeals, more than any other domain, to emotion.

Your eyes, your emotions, your thoughts, and your memory are all elements that will be stimulated by a work of art.

It will touch you even more as it doesn’t deliver a clear and official message, allowing your sensitivity to appropriate the work. In short, art is accessible to all, regardless of the level of prior knowledge.

Idée reçue N°7 : Ce qui marche c’est la provoc’ !

Mais que signifie exactement “ce qui marche” ?

Si l’on parle du marché de l’art, ce n’est pas tout à fait vrai.

De nombreuses œuvres qualifiées de “provocantes” ne trouveront pas preneurs, car considérées comme trop choquantes ou excessives.

En revanche, d’un point de vue de l’histoire de l’art, ce n’est pas totalement faux. Ce qui pouvait être perçu comme de la provocation à une certaine époque, comme les œuvres de Caravage ou de Manet, nous paraît aujourd’hui tout à fait acceptable.

Bousculer et repousser les limites fait aussi partie du rôle des artistes.


It’s undeniable that money plays a predominant role in our society.

The price of a work is often determined by factors that may seem superficial, such as the network and influence of the artist and his gallery owner, and it doesn’t necessarily reflect the intrinsic quality of the work.

However, don’t limit yourself to the few hundred artists who make the headlines and are exhibited in major international fairs.

It’s important to keep in mind that most artists fail to make a living from their art, and that many gallery owners also struggle to make ends meet. This shows that it’s primarily the love of art that drives them.


We regret having to deconstruct the myth of the tormented and cursed artist.

Just because an artist has a particular sensitivity and strives to perceive the world from a different angle doesn’t mean they’re necessarily antisocial, withdrawn, or even mentally ill.

They’re individuals like everyone else, with their flaws and peculiarities, but just as real and human.


Very often, the sceptic will answer this question before you’ve had time to respond: “Art serves no purpose.”

But that’s precisely the essence of art: it doesn’t serve a specific purpose! It’s a free element, an elusive and ever-evolving conception.

It reflects a thought, an emotion, an era, an act…

What’s the point of asking such a question when the answer depends on each individual?

Art collectors have long played a key role in the evolution of art and aesthetic tastes, playing a crucial role in the art market. Their influence also extends to future market trends. However, contemporary art collectors are clearly different from their predecessors, their profiles evolving in response to the advent of digital art. The rise of digital art has also given rise to new types of collector.

In this article, we will attempt to take a closer look at the identity of these new collectors.


A new wave of collectors is emerging, occupying an increasingly significant position in the art market: young art collectors, also known as Generation Z, covering an age range up to 25. They have a keen interest in developing art collections.

As the driving force behind the art market, Generation Z is redefining trends in art collecting. These young collectors are at the forefront of a major digital transformation, propelling the online art market to impressive figures, estimated at €16 billion by 2030.

Thanks to technology and social networks, Generation Z see art as an extension of their personal identity. Spread across the United States, Europe and, above all, Asia, these affluent young collectors are becoming key players for international auction houses.

In the first half of 2023, wealthy millennials in Asia spent an average of €55,000 on works of art, closely followed by Generation Z, who invested €52,000.

According to the forecasts of the 2023 Art Basel & UBS survey, this young generation is destined to accumulate considerable wealth, up to 65,000 billion euros by 2030.


Younger art buyers are more driven by investment objectives and are turning towards emerging artists, as well as socially engaged art, such as indigenous artists.

They are also more inclined to analyse the aspirations of particular artists rather than focusing on art history, as previous generations did. In 2023, millennials will favour sculptures, installations and photography.

Generation Z collectors have overtaken spending on digital art and prints. Younger buyers value emerging artists in their collections (64%), revealing a shift in priorities from the previous generation. It is worth noting that renowned artists are less popular with young collectors (11%) than with their older counterparts (23%).

Technology has also made it simpler, faster and more secure to acquire works of art online, encouraging younger buyers to make purchases, even at higher prices.

The evolving landscape of Generation Z collectors is a dynamic force shaping the future of the art market.


The metamorphosis of the global art market is accompanied by the emergence of a new generation of customers, mainly investors. A study carried out by Hiscox reveals a growing trend among millennials to buy works of art online, a perfectly normal practice. Surprisingly, this trend can also be observed among older generations, such as Generation X and baby boomers.

Ease of access to information, price transparency and guaranteed quality are often cited as the main advantages of online transactions. Around a third of young buyers and almost 40% of first-time art buyers said they had made their first art purchase online. So the online market is playing a crucial role in attracting new generations of collectors. Although younger buyers are more inclined to explore different platforms, the majority of buyers, whatever their age, remain loyal to their favourite marketplaces.

Millennials are also distinguished by their propensity to take risks when investing in artistic products, an attitude less common among their elders. As a result, they are using social media not only to buy art, but also to learn more about it.

In 2023, 29% of art buyers said they had acquired works directly via Instagram. Among buyers under 35, this figure rose to 42% over the last 12 months. Instagram is thus emerging as an essential marketing tool for artists and galleries, enabling them to cultivate relationships based on trust and interest with the younger generation.

In addition, the researchers behind the latest joint study by Art Basel and UBS highlight the existence of regional differences in terms of art purchases, both online and offline. In Taiwan, Brazil and Germany, for example, a higher-than-average proportion of buyers prefer to access the sales of online dealers. On the other hand, in Japan and mainland China for the year 2023, these proportions are lower.

And if you are afraid of making the wrong choice, the solution of a gift voucher is of course at your disposal.

Anna BELLMANN – New artist at the gallery

By Latest news

When poetry only needs a piece of paper

Anna Bellmann’s work could be compared to that of a lace embroiderer. The finesse of the workmanship makes the object so fragile, but thanks to the interplay of light and shadow, it asserts itself in space and freezes our gaze, impressed by so much detail. It gives the impression of an optical illusion made of filigree.

Anna Bellmann grew up on the shores of Lake Starnberg, between Munich and the Alps. An artist from an early age, her fascination with working with paper gave rise in 2008 to her own little art studio called ‘Feine Papierobjekte’.

It’s after a hike or a trip that her creativity is at its peak, and nature gives her the inspiration she needs through the vegetation, the changing forms of nature, the living creatures and landscapes she discovers. She then transcribes her emotions (on a large scale) onto paper (on a small scale), always and only with 2 accessories: paper and a cutter!

Each of her creations is created freehand, without any prior drawing, right down to the smallest detail, using simple white paper, as fragile, light and ephemeral as nature itself, whose shapes she tries to capture with her cut-outs. The interplay of light and shadow is the very essence of her art.

Only a handful of artists in the world have this level of mastery of paper-cutting, which is why she exhibits every year at the INTERNATIONAL PAPER ART BIENNIAL in Shanghai.

With such purity and lightness, this is our artist at heart, who manages to thrill us with a simple sheet of paper!
