Exhibition Catalogue Gulbenkian Revealed: In the Collector’s Private Realm, presented at The Al Thani Collection at the Hôtel de la Marine (June 10 – October 2, 2022).

The exhibition presents a carefully selected group of 90 works of art, principally small in scale and made to be carefully handled and privately cherished by the connoisseur- collector.

Through these objects, the exhibition explores five key principles which guided Calouste Gulbenkian (1869-1955) as a collector: preciousness, intimate scale, craftsmanship, provenance and rarity. Reflecting the diversity of artworks which appealed to Gulbenkian, the exhibition also highlights his fascination with the material quality of the objects that the collected.
