The Museum of Museums
Works of art are our common heritage.
We can finally imagine a museum or an exhibition with the works we dream of, mixing great icons with everyday artists and our hearts.

the Imaginary Museum, 1950 ©
André Malraux, considered that art is the universal language of humanity. The photographic reproduction of the works of art made it possible to combine the images to compare them, comment on them and define their magical and fragile presence without having to travel or dislocate it. He placed numerous reproductions of famous works by Rembrandt, Michelangelo, Egyptian and Greek sculptures on the floor of the living room in Avenue Victor Hugo, creating his Musée Imaginaire. Moreover, it could change infinite times before his eyes.
