The exhibition "Dalí. A History of Painting" produced by the Grimaldi Forum Monaco, is supported by the Compagnie Monégasque de Banque (CMB), SOTHEBY’S, and d’AMICO.


The CMB and its history

The Compagnie Monégasque de Banque has been firmly established in the Principality since 1976.

For more than 40 years, the CMB has seized opportunities for growth by offering not only traditional banking services, but also consultancy solutions in investment, financing and wealth management.

The Bank’s 220 employees strive daily to provide its clients with tailor-made solutions with one sole aim: their satisfaction.

La CMB and women

The Académie Femmes et Finance (Women and Finance Academy) created in 2016 by the CMB is unique in its kind. It offers training to give women the culture needed to understand the management of family wealth. Teaching is provided by professionals inside or outside the bank. The students approach different financial topics for one year and put the theory into practice using a virtual portfolio that they manage.

The CMB and professional athletes

The CMB has developed a specific offer for top athletes. A dedicated cell accompanies them and helps them prepare for their future, during and after their professional sports career. The experts of the CMB put their specific knowledge in this field at the service of this clientele and take into account the characteristics of the construction and management of the professional athletes’ assets.

The CMB and culture

Monegasque above all, the CMB contributes to the promotion of several institutions in the Principality: the Grimaldi Forum, the Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra and the Oceanographic Museum.

An official partner of the Grimaldi Forum since 2005, the Bank has renewed its support for this prestigious cultural institution in 2019 and is proud to be associated with the great summer exhibition dedicated to the painter Salvador Dalí as well as to the high-quality shows that are offered there.


Helena Newman, President of Sotheby’s Europe says: “We are delighted to support this exhibition, which celebrates the master of Surrealism and takes us on a remarkable journey through the artistic career of Dalí over a period of eight decades. Bringing together over a hundred works, this exhibition will explore the fruits of Dali's prodigious subconscious in detail”..

Since 1744, Sotheby’s has united collectors with works of art of international importance. Sotheby’s became the first global auction house when it expanded from London to New York (1955), passing through Hong Kong (1973), where it was the first to hold sales, in India (1992), in France (2001) and finally in China (2012) where it has become the leading international “Fine Art” auction house.

Today, Sotheby's holds auctions in nine different venues, including New York, London, Hong Kong and Paris; the Sotheby’s BidNow program allows visitors from all over the world to track all auctions on-line and bid directly from any location.

The company offers collectors the opportunity to utilise Sotheby’s Financial Services; this is the world’s only full-service art finance company, and can be used not only for private sales in more than 70 categories, including S|2, the gallery of the Contemporary Art Department of Sotheby’s and for two other commercial sales: Sotheby’s Diamonds and Sotheby’s Wine.

Sotheby’s has a global network of 90 offices in 40 countries and is the oldest company listed on the New York Stock Exchange.
