Marin Montagut's mineralogical plates

These 19th century encyclopedic plates were hunted out by Marin Montagut, who then painted jaspers, agates, amethysts, etc. in watercolor. They have found an ideal showcase in the brand new Parisian shop of this iconoclastic creator. Video director, movie set designer, illustrator, and travel guide designer, Marin Montagut has created a dreamlike and joyful universe reminiscent of a cabinet of curiosities: scarves with motifs recalling the districts of Paris, cardboard treasure boxes painted by him, collections of antique glassware or bells, etc.

145 euros
