Chaumet will occupy the mythical Forbidden City of Beijing from April 11 to July 2, 2017.
The famous jeweler will exhibit its history from the end of the 18th century to the beginning of the 21st century.
What a surprise when Chaumet announced its exhibition. A desire to promote its ancestral know-how in China. The 300 rooms occupied by the exhibition will allow visitors to soak up both the incredible collection that is exhibited but also this unique place.
Among these historical pieces, visitors will be able to admire works of art, jewelry, paintings and other drawings.
These exceptional objects have been collected from various prestigious museums such as the Louvre, Fontainebleau Castle, and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
Placed under the scientific direction of Henri Loyrette, the exhibition « Imperial Splendours » is based on the richness of the Chaumet heritage and traces its history and its evolution through the centuries.
The Imperial Splendors exhibition will also feature a contemporary tiara – the result of a creative competition at the Saint Martins School of Art in London.
