The show, entitled Cover Artists Togeth’Her 2021, is being conducted in collaboration with the celebrated and influential French women’s magazine Madame Figaro which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. Conceived and initiated by David-Hervé Boutin and Madame Figaro the exhibition gave carte blanche to 26 contemporary artists to imagine and create a cover for the magazine. The artists, including Joana Vasconcelos, Jean-Michel Othoniel and Prune Nourry, have donated their works to be sold at auction to benefit a charity or organization selected together with the subject of the portrait.

The sale will be conducted by the auction house of Artcurial at the end of June on line at http://www.artcurial.com The artists have also agreed for their work to be edited in a signed and numbered limited edition, high quality lithograph ranging from 20 to 100 prints. The catalogue of the exhibition can be viewed at http://www.togeth-her.com
