Extract from Press Release :
“THE ART OF HOSPITALITY An eclectic collection of French and international art works contrasts contemporary with classic at The Peninsula Paris.
An art collection of vibrant contemporary works reflects The Peninsula Paris’ cosmopolitan elegance and its heritage site near the Arc de Triomphe and Champs Elysées.
The collection was curated by Sabrina Fung of Sabrina Fung Fine Arts Ltd, who also created the art programmes for the Peninsula hotels in Hong Kong and Shanghai. Given Paris’ status as a global city, the aim was to create an international art collection, but with particular emphasis on French artists.
Working with artists from France and all over the world whose careers Sabrina has been watching over the past few years, the collection took almost a year to put together, with two-thirds of the pieces specially commissioned for The Peninsula Paris. French artists are represented by the mixed media works of Patricia Erbelding in every guestroom, bronze and aluminum sculptures by Parisian Nathalie Decoster located in the Katara, Historic and Terrace suites, Michel Alexis’ oil and gesso painting in the Kléber Gallery and Deçan’s twin oil paintings in the Historical Suite.”
