This book presents more than one hundred major pieces of the museum, chosen and commented by the conservators specializing in different fields. It offers a new look at this collection and is a wonderful introduction to the history of the decorative arts. It includes the works that have made the reputation of the museum and a selection of the most beautiful pieces, unpublished, acquired in recent years.
