Renée Jacobs proudly and fearlessly advocates for the power and emancipation of women. Through the double prism of sensuality and poetry, the artist reveals a personal vision of women while appealing to the viewer’s imagination to understand the story behind each photograph. Immersed in an atmosphere of freedom and desire, Sinner highlights the artist’s works representing the female nude and Sapphic eroticism.

To close this event, 100 exceptional lots will be auctioned from December 2 to 11 on the Catawiki online sales platform. Fans who wish to do so will be able to discover these works, only presented at Sinner, on Saturday December 10 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The auction will include several one-of-a-kind items, including Carte de Visite 19th century albums containing original Type 55 Polaroids, similar to the album Sinner has in its collection and which is displayed in The Crypt. This sale, entitled “The Art of Renée Jacobs”, will cover the entire career of the artist.
