Chapter 4: Cartier and The Road to the Middle East
Explore Chapter 4 of the L’Odyssée de Cartier saga
In the beginning of the 20th century, Louis Cartier discovers Islamic art. It is an encounter, an aesthetic clash. A great collector, passionate about art and curious about foreign cultures, he sees the power of these stylized yet abstract motifs. In 1911, his brother, Jacques, visits the Gulf to establish first contacts and to set some milestones which will become one of the foundations of Cartier style.
