DROUOT: THE TEMPLE OF AUCTIONS
A rare look behind the scenes
Drouot has been the Parisian auction temple for 150 years. 16 rooms, 2,000 m2, 5,000 visitors daily, 600,000 items sold each year, all this under the hammer of the auctioneers.
Here one can meet the millionaires looking for the unique and costly object to enrich their collections, or the individual seller who comes to part with a piece of family heirloom.
The place offers a permanent ballet of objects changing hands under the eyes of regulars who come here as if they were at a show.
