I failed to spot that the Hôtel de la Marine in Paris opened a new exhibition last week entitled A Taste for the Renaissance: a dialogue between collections. The show features a series of loaned objects from the Victoria & Albert Museum alongside works from the Al Thani collection.

According to the museum's website:

With more than 130 works of art on display, the exhibition comprises sculpture, metalwork, jewellery, glass, textiles, books, manuscripts, paintings, works on paper and exotica, many of which have never previously been shown in Paris. 

This includes works by Antico, Lucas Cranach the Younger, François Clouet, Vittore Crivelli, Donatello, Nicholas Hilliard, Hans Holbein the Younger and Leonardo da Vinci, together with treasures and objets d'art created for noble and royal patrons by many of the most accomplished artists of the period.

The show will run until 30th June 2024.
