Is Montreal the Monaco of North America?  Iegor de St-Hippolyte, founder of IEGOR Hôtel des Encans (house of auctions), thinks so.  Hailing from  France via Monaco, he was seduced by Montreal’s unique architecture and decided to make it his home.  From here, he searches for and sells prestigious Canadian and international works of art, jewelry, antique books, decorative pieces, rare wines, etc…  In 2004, he was appointed the official North American representative of Drouot, the world-famous Paris auction house.

But to really understand the extent of Iegor’s passion for art, you’ll need to visit the stunning  neo-classical style church he uses as his salesroom – a perfect setting that adds  grandeur and excitement of his montlhy live auctions.
