The second stage of the International Artist of Europe Award, based in Paris is organized by PitturiAmo with the aim of giving visibility to all the artists admitted in an international context of certain prestige. Its goal is to identify 25 talented artists to be included in a network of international artists, flanked by the great European and non-European gallery owners.

A selection of artists, of particular importance, will have the opportunity to establish working relationships with the Thuillier gallery and with other international galleries collaborating with PitturiAmo, in the main European capitals (Rome, Vienna, Madrid, Milan, etc.) entering, in fact, in a selected circle of international artists: the TOP SELECTION, where collectors, curators, critics or simple art lovers will be able to find new talents to discover and valorize.


Win the opportunity to finally join the circle that counts!

Top Selection stage N° 5 – Paris


Open selections


The Top Selection is a network, constantly evolving, consisting of several international stages. The previous stages have been organized in Roma, Vienna, Madrid, Milan.The next stages will be identified in the future. Each stage sees the involvement of a new gallerist, identified in the city where the Prize will be held.

The gallerist chosen for this Parisian stage is Denis Cornet, of the Thuillier gallery, located at 13 Rue de Thorigny.

Denis Cornet will select, among all the participants, 25 artists of his exclusive interest, to include them in his entourage and involve them in events of international standing, presenting them to his collectors and art curators.

The artists selected by Cornet will be included in the TOP SELECTION, organized by PitturiAmo in collaboration with the best international gallery owners.

The artists belonging to the TOP SELECTION are identified exclusively by the gallery owners of the big international cities where PitturiAmo organizes its art events. This project creates an extremely small and selected nucleus of artists in continuous evolution, with an increasingly rich and prestigious curriculum.

All the artists of the TOP SELECTION will in fact be included in a special website with reserved access for international gallery owners, thus having the opportunity to obtain contacts, discounts and exclusive invitations to the best art events, chosen and selected by the gallery owners themselves.

Galerie Thuillier – Rue de Thorigny, 13 – Paris


The Thuillier Gallery, a family-run business that has been around for more than fifteen years, is located in the heart of Le Marais, near Place des Vosges and the Picasso Museum, in the capital’s gallery district.

The aim of the gallerists is to present the main artistic trends of the European market, in the context of twenty-one exhibitions a year, to a wide and varied clientele that assiduously frequents this district.

A true place of exchanges and privileged meetings, in a space of 150 square meters, distributed over two floors, it presents to an international clientele various artworks at reasonable prices.

The gallery thus offers professional artists or promising amateurs the opportunity to exhibit and sell their creations in this predestined district.

Moreover, the Thuillier Gallery has been organizing international exhibitions for several years, particularly in Japan and Cambodia.

The Thuillier Gallery has been a long-standing partner of the Kubota Gallery (Tokyo, Japan) and of numerous other Asian partners. This partnership allows many Asian artists to make themselves known in Paris and, conversely, European artists to exhibit in Tokyo in front of an international clientele.
