From June 21st till September 4th, 2017, the musée Guimet welcomes “Porcelaine, chefs-d'œuvre de la collection Ise” (Porcelain, masterpieces of the Ise collection), an exhibition on the art of Chinese ceramics. This retrospective, which is held on the ground floor of the hotel d’Heidelbach, presents a wide selection of old Chinese ceramics of the Ise collection.

This event which is a proof of the evolution, the beauty and the precision of the Chinese ceramic art, is available just a few-minute walk away from the Green Hotels Paris, the Eiffel Trocadéro and the Gavarni.
