The Museum of Hunting and Nature, a striking exhibition
If you’re hunting for national treasures in Paris, you should not miss this remarkable place, which showcases respectful hunting practices, wildlife preservation and ecological consciousness. Established by François and Jacqueline Sommer and enriched continuously for half a century, the collections include more than 5000 works, classified by the Ministry of Culture and Communication and housed in one of the most beautiful mansions in the Marais, the Hôtel de Guénégaud. In the current exhibition ‘The New Hunting’, the visual artist Julien Salaud engages in a dialogue with the art of tapestry as practised by the weavers of the Royal Beauvais, as well as contemporary art and taxidermy.
