Cartier. Le style et l’histoire, presented in the prestigious Salon d’Honneur room of the Grand Palais, is the first exhibition of this scale to be held in Paris since the Cartier retrospective at the Petit Palais in 1989. Commissioned by the Réunion des musées nationaux – Grand Palais, the exhibition explores Cartier's role in the history of style and decorative arts, from the founding of the Maison in 1847 to the mid-1970s. The exhibition features more than 600 extraordinary pieces, presented side-by-side for the first time. Most of the pieces belong to the Cartier Collection, or have been loaned by private parties, institutions and museum collections from France and around the world. Together, these pieces are a testament to the rich and intricate history of the Jeweler to Kings and the King of Jewelers.
