SUMMER READING LIST: YVON LAMBERT
Yvon Lambert is a pioneering art dealer based in Paris. His shows, featuring work ranging from the early founders of minimalism & land artists to important gestural painters & conceptualists, have had global impact since 1966. He truly is one of the greats. In 2001, Lambert opened a beautiful bookshop selling art books in the Marais that remains a must-stop for any booklover visiting the city. We're honored to share Yvon's recommended summer reads.
Susan Sontag: The Volcano Lover
"A beautiful and tragic book set in Naples, perfect for travelling by boat or train. It depicts a love story, the rise and fall of a woman and the loneliness of an old English art collector in a vanishing world during the French Revolution."
Thank you, Yvon!
