Art weekend in Paris at the unmissable Salon du Dessin

This year’s exhibitors at Salon du Dessin have selected exceptional drawings by old masters as well as modern and contemporary artists. Over 1000 drawings were gathered together in the historic setting of Palais Brongniart.

Here is Losing My Hair personal choice of top 5 most wanted hit parade! See the pictures.
