"Living For Art", the collection of Yves Saint Laurent and Jacques Doucet

This is a rare opportunity. A chance to partake of the intimate surroundings of two art collectors who came to embody the concept of taste for their respective eras. Yves Saint Laurent (1936 – 2008) and Jacques Doucet (1853 – 1929) were both couturiers and creators of beauty. This vibrant exhibition, which runs until February 14th, is selected from masterpieces collected by these influential figures and once displayed in the ‘collection spaces’ of their homes. Here you will find important works by Braque, Brancusi, Chirico, Coard, Csaky, Derain, Duchamp, Gray, Legrain, Laurencin, Manet, Matisse, Miklos, Modigliani, Picasso and Rousseau. The visitor is transported to Jacques Doucet’s final home on the Rue Saint-James in Neuilly of the early 20th century and, simultaneously, the Rue de Babylone apartment owned by Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé half a century later. The artistic spirit of these places constitutes the subject of this remarkable exhibition as the visitor is drawn through a series of five rooms that mirror each other and reflect the search for the perfect space that was undertaken by both of these visionary and inspired collectors, whose legacy we can now enjoy.
