In the final session, planned on Thursday the 19th January at 6:00 p.m. a painting by François-Olivier Nolorgues, named 'Health Care' (acrylic on canvas, 2022, 100x100cm) will be auctioned as lot number 87 for a range of a value between 20,000 / 30,000 €. The French artist is classified as a figurative painter. His work is part of a quasi-holistic approach in search of the intimate energy of each person he meets. Attitudes, movements, sensations, personalities are at the center of his artistic production. Nothing is taken for granted and the final result never predetermined. In other words "he listens to the future and transcribes it in the present as if the truth was somewhere possible to materialise".

The proceeds of the auction will be donated to Monaco Liver Disorder (M.L.D.), association created ten years ago by Carla Fadoul Shechter, under the honorary presidency of H.S.H. Princess Charlène of Monaco. It is the only Monegasque body that is totally committed to the medical research on liver diseases affecting children by providing support to their families at the same time. Since its creation (2011), Princess Charlene of Monaco is acting as the Honorary President of the association.

Carla Fadoul Shechter highlighted: "We are actively helping and supporting medical research so that we can overcome serious diseases that are still too often fatal".

Participating in the auction tomorrow afternoon will be vital to help research and allow a better life for those affected by serious diseases at an early age. ***
