One of the great joys of visiting Paris is the opportunity to view the extraordinary examples of Asian art in Parisian museums. The Musée Guimet is particularly famous for its Southeast Asian art. However, there are also fascinating but less well-known collections in the Musée Cernuschi and the Musée du Quai Branly - Jacques Chirac, which opened amid great controversy in 2006.

One of the SAA’s favorite speakers, Dr. Julian Brown, will explain the fascinating backgrounds of these collections and will show examples of the artworks they contain. Julian’s insights and anecdotes will make you want to book the next flight to Paris!

Born and educated in England, art historian Julian Brown commutes between his homes in Normandy and Paris. He has a PhD from University of London’s School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS). He spends most of his time leading tours in Europe and Southeast Asia, in addition to lecturing on his research at universities, museums and international conferences.
