Yvelines: the painter of Abbé Pierre is still looking for patrons for his charity sale in Paris

His bottle in the sea found a raft. At the beginning of March, Le Parisien relayed the appeal of the painter “Janvier” – Jacques Renault in everyday life – who was looking for a base to organize a charity sale of his works, for the benefit of Emmaüs.

The artist, based in Rambouillet (Yvelines) for around thirty years, spent a large part of his career supporting this structure founded by Abbé Pierre. He has just completed a full-length portrait of this priest whom he admires. On the sidelines of an exhibition scheduled from August 14 to 25 at the Orangery of the Senate, in Paris, the painter wanted to propose an auction, part of the profits of which would be donated to the foundation. In recent years, “Janvier” has organized similar operations, notably in Melun (Seine-et-Marne), Rambouillet (Yvelines) and in the Var.

The gallery of the Boischaut auction house has agreed to host the event: the sale will be held on Saturday September 7, at 2 p.m., at 30 rue Delambre, in the 14th arrondissement of Paris. Eighty works by the painter will be visible there from August 26, just after the exhibition at the Senate. The auction will be conducted by Rémi Simhon, auctioneer in Rambouillet, live with Drouot.

To complete the operation and the financial investment it requires, “Janvier” is always looking for patrons. People who wish to support him can contact 06.03.08.12.96.
