Paris at "l'Atelier Maître Albert" opposite Notre-Dame (now owned by chef Guy

Savoy), and at the "Taverne du Sergent Recruteur" on the Île Saint-Louis.

to build up an important collection over several decades, based on their discoveries

1960s to 1980s.

Mr. and Mrs. C. assembled this collection in three locations: the French Riviera, in

Paris near the Champs-Elysées, and in the Île-de-France region. Achieving harmony in each.
