The Maison Loo of Paris !

Here is something unusual and quant of my eternal Paris. I am always in my road warrior more or walking zombie there, and came upon a beautiful red building that caught my eyes. This was many years ago and had the picture hidden in my vault until now; and its time for me to included it in my blog for me and you. Hope you enjoy the post as I.

The Maison Loo located at 48 rue de Courcelles in the 8éme arrondissement of Paris ,is a Chinese Pagoda that it is in no way a religious building, but simply the result of one man’s love for his country of origin , China , and his will to share it with his adopted country, France. Arriving in Paris in 1902, Ching Tsai Loo was a dazzlingly successful art dealer. He bought a private mansion built in 1880, in the classic French style, to carry out his activity there a few steps from Parc Monceau. The mansion is raised by 2 floors, the roof is rebuilt, and the entire building is painted red , A construction completed in 1926.


And although it was sold in 2011, it continues its activity according to the wishes of its illustrious founder , namely to be a cultural link between France and China. It is now a private museum, which offers exhibitions and fairs throughout the year ,and even spaces that can be privatized. The only opportunities if you wish to discover the magnificent typical Chinese interior decoration of this pagoda. The official Galerie C.T. Loo & Cie is today the oldest gallery of Asian art in Paris and the only real Chinese house in Paris. A unique decoration of 600 m 2 of Asian arts.
