Discover Mystérieux Coffrets at Paris Musée de Cluny
Historical shows can often draw a bigger crowd when we look at the artistry of objects and eras. That is precisely what is going on with an upcoming exhibition at the Paris Musee de Cluny.
From 18/09/2019 to 06/01/2020
This show is titled Mysterious Chests: Engravings at the age of The Lady and the Unicorn. This title refers to two important features of the show. The later is an old tapestry that inspired the artist Jean d’Ypres. The former refers to the series of carved chests that bare the artwork. This is an exceptional collection of mysterious chests with detailed carvings and craftsmanship. The exhibition furthers the story with other documents, tapestries, engravings and more to give a better idea of the historical context.
“Mystérieux Coffrets: Estampes au temps de la Dame à la Licorne” is one of those shows that needs to be seen to be understood correctly. It is a unique look at a niche artform and a single image. But, there is a lot to learn. Visitors can do so between September 18th and January 6th.
