Take a peek into the life of auctioneer, collector, and artnet News columnist Simon de Pury. Via his Instagram, he will be sharing a bit of glamour and a bit of excitement with us each week—whether he’s trotting the globe or on the scene closer to home.

Simon has been busy enjoying the final days of summer. From a quick jaunt to France to several sun-soaked days in the Hamptons, he’s documented the most delicious parts (a cozy Parisian bar and a mouth-watering berry-topped dessert, respectively) in an array of eye-popping photographs. While in Europe, he also managed to stop by Galerie Eva Presenhuber for a sneak preview of Steven Shearer’s upcoming solo show, where he zeroed in on a psychedelic portrait.

But the true highlight is once again his ongoing series of striking portraits of artists and friends, typically shot in front of their own colorful artworks. Who made the cut this time? Jean-Baptiste Bernadet, Torey Thornton, Mark Bradford, Mark Grotjahn, Sterling Ruby, and Jonas Wood —a pretty stellar pack. A nonchalant ‘gram from Simon de Pury just may be the new art world status symbol.
