Created in the winter of 2020 by the french artist Margaux Derhy, Le Cercle de l'Art was designed to establish a privileged relationship between collector and artist.
Le Cercle de l'Art allows collectors to become part of an artist's privileged circle, to acquire his or her works in monthly instalments over a year, to offer access to the intimacy of his or her work, and to benefit from very special attentions reserved exclusively for collector members.
Thanks to this 21st century patronage, the artist can perpetuate her creation through monthly payments.
Selected with 19 other artists for the Season 0 of this beautiful project, I propose since September 13, 2021, thirteen works in various prices and formats, available for sale during one month only and payable in 12 monthly payments over one year.
Since September 13, 2021, discover the selection of 13 works available for Le Cercle
The artworks selection is available for sale until 12 October 2021 only
This is a one-off opportunity in the year, there will be no further opportunity to join my Collectors' Circle until September 2022

Do we receive the catalogue of all the participating artists or just yours ?
Just mine! To receive the catalogue of the other artists, just ask them: their contact details are all listed on the Cercle de l'Art website
Go and have a look, they are all talented !
Is it a rental or do we own the art piece ?
It is not a rental but a purchase with payment in 12 monthly instalments
The work is delivered to you in the first month and you officially become the owner once all the monthly payments are made
If we like an artwork, can we put an option ?
Yes, however, as the artworks are offered for sale for one month only, it is only possible to place an option for 2 days. After this time, it will be available again.
The first person to express an interest in an artwork will have priority over the purchase
Are my contact informations as a collector member confidential ?
Yes! In the Cercle de l'Art, the participating artist NEVER shares or distributes the contact information of his collector members. At no time will he/she be asked to communicate the personal information of collector members.
The objective of Le Cercle de l'Art is only to support the artist in the search for potential buyers and to create a community of artists and collectors !
What are the conditions to join Le Cercle ?
The Circle is open to all curious collectors
When do I receive the art piece ?
Delivery of the work takes place upon the first receipt of the permanent payment.
The collector member will receive the work by mail (at his or her own charge) or in person at the artist's studio
How does the payment take place ?
The member collector pays for the artwork in 12 payement to the artist's bank account by means of a permanent debit limited to 12 months
