Salon de la Maquette On Another Week

This one has quietly snuck up on me, and there will be a report about it for next week's issue. This modelling and games show continues until Monday, 13. April. This salon is interesting to non-modelers for things like the flying objects such as helicopters and rockets, and for seeing the tools modelers use. Hours are from 10:00 to 19:00; on Friday, 10. April, until 22:00. At Paris-Expo, Porte de Versailles, Paris 15.

Henri Cernuschi, Voyageur et Collectionneur

Cernuschi came back with a large collection of oriental treasures, and he had a townhouse built by the Parc de Monceau to house it. His collection influenced French artists and artisans of the time, and was especially famous for its Japanese bronzes, as well as those of China and Korea.
