In partnership with the National Institute of Art History (INHA), this unique and ambitious project offers to discover two centuries of enthusiasm for Asian arts in France, the royal collections of Louis XV or Marie-Antoinette to the collections for commercial and then scientific purposes carried out in Asia from the 1850s to 1930, without forgetting the vogue for Japonism shared by artists, collectors or simple lovers of “curios” in the 19th century . This exhibition is recognized as being of national interest by the Ministry of Culture.
