With the support of the Beaux-Arts de Paris, Chaumet invites you to discover Végétal - L'École de la beauté. Crossing visions, periods and media, this original exhibition invites you to look at nature through the universal prism of art and beauty.
Initiating the project, Chaumet drew on its vast heritage, one of the most important in the history of jewellery in Europe, to make its botanical vision resonate with all the artistic forms that have also looked at plants.
Curator of the exhibition, the botanist Marc Jeanson has imagined Végétal as a herbarium, composed from the species present in Chaumet creations.
Nearly 400 works offer the public a free stroll through 5,000 years of art and science, told through a dialogue between paintings, sculptures, textiles, photographs, furniture and 80 jewellery objects from Chaumet and other houses.
For this exhibition, more than 70 museums, foundations, galleries and private collectors have lent works: the Museum of Natural History, the Orsay and Louvre museums, the Institut de France, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Pistoia Musei, the Musée de l'École de Nancy, the Royal Botanic Gardens of Kew, the Kunsthalle of Hamburg, the Albion Art Collection of Tokyo, to name but a few
