Exhibition: From the Great Mughals to the Maharajas

While the exhibition dedicated to Rodin is held until July 31st 2017, the Grand Palais welcomes another event entitled "From the Great Mughals to the Maharajas: Jewels from the Al Thani collection". 270 pieces of Indian jewelry from the Mughal period to the present day are exposed. Diamonds, gemstones, jewels and other spectacular works are revealed to the general public, from the collections of Maharajahs and also from renowned institutions. Organized in partnership with the national museum of Asian arts - Guimet, this event allows us to revisit five centuries of the history of Indian jewelry. The exhibition is divided into two parts: one deals with the artistic refinement of Mughal India, the other articulates around the rock crystal and the jade, two very appreciated materials in the court of the Mughal emperors. These wonders are to be discovered just a few metro stations away from the Green Hotels Paris, the Eiffel Trocadéro and the Gavarni.
