For this initial exhibition devoted to the painting collection at the quai Branly, Paintings from Distant Lands brings together nearly two hundred canvases and graphic works selected from among the five hundred works in the entire collection and dating from the late 18th century to the mid-20th century. A composite and largely unknown collection, where Ange Tissier's odalisque sits alongside portraits of American Indians by George Catlin, and scenes of day-to-day life in Cairo by Émile Bernard stand shoulder to shoulder with prints and drawings of Tahiti by Matisse and Gauguin.
