The Forbidden City


Since our exhibition at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco, six years ago, 
"Regards sur la Papouasie Nouvelle Guinéé"
we have been lucky enough to be invited to the opening of each year's
summer exhibition.
We remember how impressed we were by the "Japan" exhibition of 2010 and simply could not resist visiting Monaco for their  
"The Forbidden City" exhibition this year. 
We have been to The Forbidden City in Beijing several times ourselves, the first time in 1985, and wanted to renew and enrich the experience. 
We knew that the Grimaldi Forum's exhibition would be superlative, and it was. 
The icon of the exhibition was a portrait of the Emperor Kangxi
which was used as the cover of the accompanying catalogue and
the invitation.


We recommend this exhibition to anyone who has the chance to pass that way.

Our exhibition, now six years ago, (time flies) was promoted by a poster 
from one of our favourite images of a bride in one of the villages
of the Lai Valley near Mendi in the Southern Highlands of
Papua New Guinea.


We continue to work on and to offer limited edition prints from
our Papua New Guinea collection.  Please visit our
website to see more.  Or, should you have the opportunity,
visit our Summer Exhibition at our Gallery in
Châtillon-en-Diois in France where we live.
