Summary, etc.:
"From the emperors of China who considered it a natural jewel, up to Cartier and the leading London and New York jewellers who sublimated it in the 20th century in the Art Déco creations inspired by the Chinese taste, jade remains an eternal and mythical stone, an object of fascination and absolute power for the sovereign. Some 330 pieces were assembled for the first time in France, coming from 15 prestigious national and international institutions including the National Palace Museum, Taipei, which lent almost a third of the works on display." -- Provided by publisher.
