« Jade, from emperors to Art Deco »

Jade, des empereurs à l’Art déco au musée Guimet. news parisiennes décembre 2016 PLUMEVOYAGE @plumevoyagemagazine © DR

From the Emperors of China – great intercessors between Heaven and Earth – who regarded it as a natural adornment, to Cartier and the greatest jewelers of London and New York that sublimated it in the twentieth century, jade remains that eternal and mythical stone, the object of fascination and absolute power for the sovereign. Some 330 exceptional pieces are gathered for the first time in France, coming from fifteen prestigious institutions including the National Museum of the Palace of Taipei, lender for about a third of the exhibited works. A unique opportunity to discover this “beautiful stone”, “image of goodness” for Confucius and to unfold the millenary history which, from the Neolithic to the 1920s, never ceases to question its beauty, its virtue, its symbol and its Prestige. Until the 16th of January 2017
