Masterpiece London is a collection of the finest arts, design exhibits and luxury brands. Ruinart draws a parallel between the creative conception and skilled craftsmanship of its champagnes and the skillful creation of art and, as such, associates itself with a number of international unique exhibitions and fairs, such as Art Basel, Arco, Pavilion of Art and Design, etc.
Maison Ruinart honours a long-standing relationship with the world of contemporary art by exhibiting a ‘Collection of Ruinart Portraits’ by Israeli-born artist, Gideon Rubin. Ruinart’s link with art dates back to 1895 when André Ruinart invited Czech painter Mucha to design the advertising posters for the champagne. Rubin has taken inspiration from the Maison’s icons, as well as men whose legacy, work or influence embodies the spirit of Ruinart.
The portraits have been painted onto small parts of old Ruinart Champagne presentation boxes using large brushstrokes and the artist’s signature style of representing individuals through portraits devoid of faces. The twelve portraits will be exhibited at Masterpiece art fair in London from the 27th June (Preview day) – 4th July and a selection of portraits will be sold exclusively at the fair. The collaboration with Gideon Rubin follows the success of Ruinart’s Kotoli exhibition with Studio Nendo at last year’s fair and a longstanding history of collaborations with contemporary artists and designers.
