The Fall Salon:
October 28 to December 12, 2020

Sélavy by Di Donna is pleased to present the Fall Salon: Icons through the Ages, featuring masterworks of art, design, and antiquities spanning from 2600 B.C. to 2000 A.D.

The current presentation embodies the spirit of Sélavy by Di Donna: a curated vignette that combines bluechip works across time periods, mediums, and cultures with modern design items.
