Hot to trot in Paris

The focus moved from Frieze in London to Paris last week with the art crowd thundering across the channel to the French fair Fiac. As well as the fair itself, a major attraction was the opening of Larry Gagosian’s new gallery with a series of parties, one attended by the colourfully shod auctioneer Simon de Pury and his wife Michaela. They celebrate their first wedding anniversary in December and are expecting their first baby on 2 January. Coincidentally (or not), Simon de Pury’s lime-green shoes matched the Cy Twomblys on show at Gagosian which, according to the gallery, were all sold (at prices between $2m and $4m, according to the French press).
