The Collector’s Tour – Fleur Bresler’s

Our final collector’s home visit was at Fleur Bresler’s. It was another feast for the eyes as Fleur welcomed us into her lovely abode of art in beautiful spaces. There were so many incredible pieces of art to look at. They ran the gamut from tapestries, to wood, to paintings, to ceramic to marble. Two hours was not enough time to allow our senses to take in all that was put before them. It was quite satisfying intellectually and aesthetically to meet and interact with Fleur, a lovely lady and versed collector.
