Travel Tip: Art and Archaeology in France
The Art of Africa and Oceania

The Art of Africa and Oceania
PARIS  •  Jacquemart-André Museum  •  Ongoing

The Barbier-Mueller Collection, the most beautiful private collection of African and Oceanic art in the world, is celebrating its 100th anniversary with a one-off exhibition of its rarest masterpieces at the Jacquemart-André Museum.

Some 150 exceptional works have been brought together to document the creative virtuosity and the technical mastery of the populations of Africa and Oceania from the ninth century onwards. The majority of the exhibits, which include the 12th-century Nigerian piece The Horsemanís Sceptre, are the only artworks of their kind in the world today.
