The works of Albert Cheuret do not run the streets and are often desired in the auction room. The collection of Claude and Simone Dray, scattered in Paris at Christie's last June, which housed a dozen lights in bronze and alabaster gently brought us closer to this sculptor of which we know practically nothing.
