2019 Auctioneer

Laurent E. Berniard

Laurent E. Berniard

Laurent E. Berniard has been an auctioneer at IEGOR Auctions for 25 years. Specialized in Canadian art and fine vintage wines, he has shown longstanding support for several causes close to his heart. In this regard, he has collaborated for nearly ten years on the fundraising campaign for the Foundation of Stars, which supports research to improve the diagnosis of rare childhood diseases. He is also actively involved with Leucan.

His intense curiosity about artistic trends has exposed him to diverse aspects of the art market, the evolution of trends, and the enshrinement of works in time. In this context, he is specifically interested in the constant renewal of art and the market—or in the impossibility of taking either for granted. His participation in Éditions esse’s Vendu–Sold benefit auction reflects this interest. Finally, thanks to the feisty energy with which he wields his hammer, as well as his irreverent and mischievous humour, the evening promises to be one full of excitement.
