Every year during Art Basel Miami Beach, Pampaloni hosts an artist in its Miami showroom. This year, Pampaloni, the famed Italian silver company, is thrilled to host René Gruau from December 3rd to February 15, 2013. Thanks to private collectors they were able to put together a vast selection of unprecedented oil on canvas, gouaches, lacquers and lithographs. Gruau was an admirer of Pampaloni’s designs and owned a number of their pieces. Among the original works of art will be the last work order of Gruau, a portrait of Cindy Crawford. Commissioned by OMEGA, who is co-hosting the event, the portrait will be shown for the first time since being exhibited at the 1999 opening of the "Musée de la publicité" at the Louvre Museum in Paris. In addition, co-host Sylvie Nissen, author with RÉJANE BARGIEL of "Gruau, Portraits of Men", will be signing her recently published book by Assouline.

The Zinc Textile Company will also show its new fashion inspired fabric collection called "Runway", which consists of 12 exclusives images by legendary Gruau. This collection is to be launched in the January edition of Maison & Objets in Paris but will be previewed at Pampaloni during Art Basel Miami Beach.
