CARTIER TREASURES: King of Jewellers, Jewellers to Kings
Exhibition on display at the Palace Museum in Beijing, China
September 5 - November 22, 2009
The Palace Museum in Beijing, China will soon work with Cartier to organise the "Cartier Treasures: King of Jewellers, Jewellers to Kings" exhibition.
Featuring precious antiques on an unprecedented scale, the exhibition assembles the essences of the East and West, demonstrating the Palace Museum's dedication to world art.
More than 350 items, including archives dating from the founding of Cartier to its creations from the 1970s, will be unveiled. Partly dedicated to royal jewels, the exhibition will be housed in China's former Imperial Palace and will be illustrated by historical documents relating to European royal courts, which earned Cartier thanks to King Edward VII of England, its reputation as the "Jeweller of Kings and King of Jewellers".
