Mercier, Eric


Éric Mercier, PH.D. in art history and exhibit curator, wields both erudition and suspense with great brio. After Dans la peau de Buffet (In Buffet’s Skin), about the murderous madness of an obsessed fan of the miserabilist painter, Fauves, which explores the Fauvist painters’ foolhardiness, and Panique à Drouot (Panic at the Drouot Auction House), which reveals the cruelty that haunts the world of the Parisian art market, Éric Mercier is back with his latest,
Le Secret de Van Gogh.
