Every now and then, French galleries are lucky enough to acquire pieces from some of the most impressive art collections in the world. The Musée des Arts Décoratifs is the latest to do so, this time with an exhibition about the Maharaja of Indore. This Indian Prince amassed an impressive collection of art and furniture in the 1920s and 1930s. He would also take his love of European design and architecture and apply it to his Manik Bagh Palace.
This new exhibition – Moderne Maharajah, un mécène des années 1930 – is a chance for French art lovers to see this collection together and get an understanding of the Prince’s taste. There are more than 500 pieces on show to offer a clear insight into the scale of the collection and key themes. This is a unique opportunity so visitors are urged to make the most of it before the exhibition closes on the 12th of January.
