A French gallery owner based in Barcelona and creator of the Fondation pour le Développement d’Art Contemporain (FDAC), Bertrand Chevreux (1953–2008) became fascinated with contemporary Chinese photography in the 1980s and took frequent trips to meet with artists who had become his friends. His collection will go on sale on December 7.
