The Cernuschi Museum is devoted to Oriental Arts and especially Far Eastern Arts. It also presents the Oriental Art collection of its founder, Henri Cernuschi (1821-1896).
Shortly before his death, Henri Cernuschi bequeathed his Oriental Art collections to the city of Paris, together with his mansion located at the entrance of Monceau Park. Inaugurated in 1898, the Cernuschi Museum exhibits a collection of Ancient Oriental art (pottery, jades, ivories, bronzes and statues). With over thousand works, the Cernuschi Museum includes one of the most important collections of ancient bronzes in the world. He also put on display a unique collection in Europe of painters from Oriental China under the dynasties of Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911) as well as a modern Chinese paintings assembly from the early twentieth century.
The Cernuschi Museum organizes Far Eastern Art exhibits. Today, the Cernuschi Museum is the second museum dedicated to Oriental Arts in France and the fifth museum of Chinese Art in Europe.
