150 pieces are presented: manuscripts, letters, works and drawings to relate the carrier of this passionate and sensible multi-talented artist. Among the masterpieces of this retrospective, the famous manuscripts of “Beauty and the Beast” considered as a “Trésor National” and which decors inspired Bambi Sloan in her vision of different spaces at the Saint James Paris.
