Artcurial at the Hôtel Marcel Dassault in Paris

Artcurial is a French auction house which has its headquarters at the historic Hôtel Marcel Dassault in Paris.


In 2001, Nicolas Orlowski acquired the Artcurial Gallery from L'Oréal.[1] He hired auctioneers Francis Briest, Hervé Poulain and Rémy Le Fur, and established an auction house by the same name.[1]

It is a subsidiary of the Dassault Group.[2] Additionally, Monegasque billionaire Michel Pastor was a shareholder until his death in 2014.[3]

As of 2014, it was the third largest auction house in Paris after Christie's and Sotheby's.[1]
