The salon 1900

This surviving piece of art which comes from The « salon du Bois » produced for the 1900 Universal Exhibition, is one of the most beautiful artefact of the Arts Decoratifs museum. It was installed in 1905 in the Marsan pavilion and is representative of Georges Hoentschel’s Art Nouveau style.

This drawing room is ornate with Algerian sycamore woodwork, consisting of two portico and showcases for some Art Nouveau artefacts acquired by the Arts Decoratifs.

An embroidered hanging with pink bottomed hawthorns, designed by Adrien Karbowsky and a painting done by the painter Albert Besnard, “L’île heureuse”, inspired by “L’embarquement pour Cythère” by Watteau completes the effect.

Situated in the Marsan pavilion, this unique piece of art is perfect to host some high standard dinners.
