Jeremy Lemercier Interview


Jérémy Lemercier, you're starting to make a name for yourself in automotive design. How did you get where you are today?


I was born into a modest family on 27 January 1991, in the French Riviera.

From the age of two to three, when I could barely hold a pencil, I spent all my time drawing.

Now, aged just 23, I get this incredible motivation that drives me day after day from the memory of the hard time I had at school.

"Carry on drawing instead of listening to the teacher and you'll never make anything of yourself..."

Being self-taught, passionate about motoring and absolutely determined to show that I could be somebody, I created my upscale automotive brand "Lemercier", my company and my first concept at the age of 18.

In 2009 I failed at one of the leading automotive design schools in Europe. Then I managed to join a much less prestigious school, which I left a few months later to avoid being too molded and to keep my originality.

But instead of giving up, I went to the office of the head of Paris Motor Show out of the blue a little while later. Because he was surprised but impressed with my ambition and determination, he gave me the opportunity to present my third automotive concept "Lemercier Revolution" in the form of a hologram in 2014.



What's your vision of tomorrow's sports car?


The cars designed by the Lemercier brand.



Electric or not?


I'm open to electric but I'm waiting to see how it develops (range, batteries, etc.).



What prompted you to launch your own upscale automotive brand?


France isn't somewhere you associate with supercars and in today's world I knew that no-one else would take the risk and be as crazy as me to consider such a venture.

And I fully intend to rebuild France's image by giving it the upscale automotive brand that it's been waiting so long for in the not too distant future.



Do you think that there's still room in the market for an upscale sports car range?


Of course! Especially at the moment when the luxury cars market has never been healthier and is recession-proof.



France is the world champion in luxury, but is it in motoring?


You won't be surprised to hear me say no, at least not for the time being...

Whilst the motoring market is collapsing, the luxury cars sector is booming.



You will exhibit your third automotive concept in the form of a hologram at the Paris Motor Show in October. What are you expecting from the Show?


Paris Motor Show is the biggest in the world, attracting an average of 1,300,000 visitors over two weeks. It will raise my profile, help me fill my address book, hopefully get some very interesting offers from all sides and move further forward in what I want to do.



How long will it be before you create a moving prototype?


Before my thirtieth birthday, but probably much earlier because everything is starting to move very fast in my career.



What can we wish you to help you achieve that ambitious goal?


To excite millions of people, that's what drives me and will help me achieve that goal and mark the history of motoring.



Jérémy Lemercier, what would you like to be remembered for in 100 years time?


For being someone who came from nowhere, who realized his dream just with his own determination, and who sent a breath of fresh air around the world, for everyone who has lost hope.

New York – Christie’s is delighted to confirm that the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles is the new owner of Edouard Manet’s Le Printemps (Springtime),sold at Christie’s New York Wednesday night for $65,125,000 (£41,028,750 / €52,100,000) after an epic bidding battle between private and institutional clients from the Americas, Europe, and Asia. The price set a new auction record for any work by Manet, nearly doubling the artist’s previous auction record of US$33.3 million, set in 2010.


Of the 30 paintings that Manet exhibited at the Paris Salon of 1882 over the course of his lifetime, Le Printemps was the last remaining in private hands. Proceeds from its sale will benefit a private American foundation supporting environmental, public health and other charitable causes.


“This is a true masterpiece with an exceptional history, from its first viewing at the Paris Salon to Washington D.C.'s National Gallery of Art, where it has been on loan for the past two decades,” noted Brooke Lampley, Head of Impressionist and Modern Art for Christie’s Americas. “It is fitting that one of our finest American museums would now acquire it for their permanent collection, where it can continue to be enjoyed by the public within the context of the museum’s rich Impressionist holdings. We couldn’t be more pleased to officially announce this exciting news with the Getty today."


Manet’s Le Printemps was the star lot of Christie’s Evening Sale of Impressionist and Modern Art on Wednesday, which achieved an overall sale total of $165,635,000 (£104,350,050/ € 132,508,000), and was 90% sold by lot and 87% by value. Of the 39 works offered, 1 lot sold for over $50 million, 6 sold for over $5 million, and 31 sold for over $1 million.38% of lots sold above the high estimate, and 23% of lots sold within the pre-sale estimate range. Three additional sales,Works on Paper, the Day Sale, and an online-only auction of Picasso Ceramics will complete this week’s sales series.


While the record price for Manet drove the evening’s headlines, the sale was also notable for consistently high sell-through rates at the middle market level, between $500,000 and $5 million. For example, works priced in the $1-2 million range were 92% sold by lot.  Similarly, works priced in the $2-5 million range were 93% sold by lot. Together, these impressive rates are an indication that collectors are seeking high-quality Impressionist and Modern art across a broad spectrum of prices.


“Christie’s is committed to presenting our clients with opportunities at every price level of the market,” noted Lampley. “The overall results and sell-through rates of our New York Evening Sale show that our strategy of building a closely-edited sale of high-quality artworks matched to current collecting tastes is a winning one, and we look forward to our next major sale series in this category in London in February.”


Impressionist and Cubist works proved particularly appealing to clients this season, with 100% of the sale’s Impressionist and Cubist offerings sold -- an indication of heightened interest in this movement as well as the great rarity of the works offered.  The Cubist selection was led by a collection of three works from the Melamed Family Collection, which totaled $10,151,000, including:

o         PABLO PICASSO, Figure, paper collage, pen and black ink and pencil                                           on paper, 1913, price realized: $4,309,000

o         GINO SEVERINI, Etude pour Autoportrait au canotier, charcoal, pastel and white and blue chalk on buff paper, 1912-1913, price realized: $4,757,000 – a new auction record for a work by the artist in this medium.

Additional Cubist Highlights

o         Juan Gris, Verre et carafe sur une table, price realized: $1,085,000

o         Pablo Picasso, Guitare, price realized: $5,317,000

o         Georges Braque, Guitare et rhum, price realized: $4,645,000


Further works from the Melamed Collection are featured in Christie’s Impressionist and Modern Art Day and Works on Paper sales, which continue Thursday.
