Following on from yesterday’s blog,
hidden by the entrance of the peculiar Parc Monceau is a very fine collection of Asia Art.

A collection of more than 5000 objects collected, between September 1871 to January 1873, by Henri Cernuschi.  It will be some task even for today’s standard, when in the 1870s there were a lack of communication, no planes, internet as such.  Amongst the collection is a 4m tall bronze Amida Buddha.

I just had a short holiday in Paris and finally visited the breath taking collection of the Musee Du Quai Branly.

From the Gilles Clément garden to the green wall by Patrick Blanc, from Jean Nouvel’s architecture to its chic mud house interior and needless to say about this collection, the whole place is a piece of art.

One could easily spend a good afternoon there browsing the surperbly presented collection, just the Africian section could endure for more than a couple of hours.  Afterwards treat yourself to a meal at the Bon Accueil which is just behind the museum.
