Hotel Lutetia Auction and Closure
The first Art Déco hotel in Paris is closing April 14, 2014 for three years… Pierre Bergé & Associés have announced the auction of Hotel Lutetia’s interior pieces. Viewing of the items opens May 15 and 18. The auction takes place between May 19 and 25, 2014 at the Hotel Lutetia.
The Hotel Lutetia, built in 1910 is selling its large art collection of works by Arman, Philippe Hiquily, César and Takis, etc. over 3,000 pieces of furniture and 8,000 bottles of wine and spirits. The Lutetia auction catalogs will be available mid-April.
After hearing about the auction on the morning breakfast show, Télématin, my research took me to the Hotel Lutetia’s blog, Le Discret, which contains more information about the hotel’s closing, the area and the history, Josephine Bakers’ bakery, etc. No word yet if the blog will continue.
