About us

Study presentation

For a number of years, Besch Cannes Auction has attracted a loyal international clientele and has become a reference in the field of Prestige Auctions.

In 1989, Jean-Pierre Besch moved to the French Riviera. The same year, he organised the first summer auction in the prestigious setting of the Grand Hyatt Hotel Martinez in Cannes. This mythical event now takes place five times a year: at Easter, in mid-July, from 14 to 16 August and from 28 to 31 December.

The remarkable results from these Prestige Auctions of Modern Paintings, Contemporary Art, Major Wines, Jewellery, Watches, Vintage Furniture and other specialities have confirmed BESCH CANNES AUCTION as one of the major players in the Art Market, and one of the most important auction houses for Wines in France.

In the speciality of "Prestige Wines", with records achieved at the seven annual auctions in Cannes, Bordeaux and Monaco, BESCH CANNES AUCTION, alongside Pascal KUZNIEWSKI, a renowned wine specialist, now stands in ninth place in the world, becoming "The French Auction House for Wines".

Each summer, the "Sports and Vintage Cars" department, managed by the specialist Stéphane EYSSERIC, holds a "Garden Party" auction on La Croisette in Cannes.

Going well beyond a simple advisory role, Besch Cannes Auction also publishes prestigious catalogues and has brought together a skilled team of renowned specialists who are available to evaluate your objects and offer them for sale.

You can contact us now to include your Paintings, Prestige Wines, Jewellery, Watches, European and Asian Art Objects, Vintage Cars or any attractive or atypical object in our future Prestige Auctions:
