The Musee Cernuschi houses the Asian art collection gathered by the Milanese banker and politician, Enrico Cernuschi, during his long trip to the far East in 1871. He displayed his art treasures in his hôtel particulier (private mansion) located near the Parc Monceau and bequeathed them to the city of Paris on his death. The objects exhibited include paintings, ceramics, silk paintings and funerary statues. You'll find a unique and carefully cultivated collection. Stand back to admire the bronze vase dating from the 12th Century BCE then view the silk paintings The Tigress and Horses and Stablemen by the 8th Century court artist Han Kan.
