Pedagogical and pleasant to leaf through, this guide follows the historical journey of the collections of the Museum of Decorative Arts, from the Middle Ages to the present day. Room after room, the major works are commented on: furniture, silverware, ceramics, glass, jewelry, wallpaper, drawings, toys..., all the fields of everyday arts are represented. Thematic approaches offer a complementary point of view on the uses, techniques or strong personalities that have marked the history of decorative arts. Beyond its function of accompanying the visit of the museum, this book is also a real tool of initiation to the decorative arts.
