Beaux Arts Special Edition / Al Thani Collection and Masterpieces of the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum - Hôtel de la Marine
For twenty years, under the terms of a partnership signed with the Centre des Monuments Nationaux (CMN), numerous pieces from the Al Thani Collection will be unveiled to visitors who come to stroll the halls of the Hôtel de la Marine, a magnificent 18th century building overlooking the Place de la Concorde in Paris. Built up in the record time of just one decade, the Al Thani Collection is one of the finest collections of art in the world.
Archaeological pieces, medieval manuscripts, paintings from all periods, Fabergé pieces and jewels... This collection is as rich as it is eclectic, since it brings together more than 5,000 works from many civilisations around the world, from Antiquity to the present day. A journey through time and space of the highest order, for the Al Thani Collection is the reflection of a very personal vision, that of His Highness Sheikh Hamad bin Abdullah Al Thani, nourished by taste and knowledge that the years have only increased. At the beginning, there is the eye of the connoisseur.
Beaux Arts Éditions looks back at the most beautiful pieces presented and the civilizations that produced them, and gives a place to the masterpieces of the Gulbenkian collection, which will be hosted alongside the masterpieces of the Al Thani Collection.
