About the event

To celebrate the 60th anniversary of cultural relations between China and France and to mark the 7th Printemps Asiatique, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs is presenting a new display of Chinese collections in its permanent exhibition. This presentation highlights the exceptional nature of certain materials and the many skills practised in China, illustrated by objects produced from the 13th to the end of the 19th century, during the Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties. These skills made it possible to sublimate materials such as jade and other hard stones, porcelain, cloisonné or painted enamels and bronze, as well as lacquered wood, rhinoceros horn, feathers, ivory, silk and glass. This conference will also look at the history of this collection, its presentation, and the source of inspiration it has provided for artists, designers and manufacturers for over 150 years.

With : Béatrice Quette, Curator in charge of Asian and non-Western collections, musée des Arts Décoratifs.
