The Pagoda Paris: A monument to Asian art in Europe
SITUATED IN THE famous 8th arrondissement, adjacent to the Parc Monceau, sits one of Paris’ most striking architectural treasures, the Pagoda. With its crimson red exterior, jade-green roof tiles capped with Chinese gargoyles, and its latticework windows in imperial yellow, the building stands as an exclamation mark among the rows of grey and white Haussman-style buildings. When I first arrived on its doorstep in August 2011, the gate was locked and it appeared unoccupied, possibly even abandoned. But today, after extensive renovations and planning, the gates are open and the building is alive again with the art and culture of Asia.

Notes From the Dealer C. T. Loo, and Pens of a Certain Age
A Chinese Dealer, Trafficker in Mystery
By EVE M. KAHN | Published: September 6, 2012
The Chinese art dealer C. T. Loo held court at his galleries in Paris, New Y ork, Shanghai and Beijing. From the 1910s through the 1940s, he spoke mysteriously of his “friends” who could acquire artifacts in the countryside, while he angled spotlights on stone Buddha heads and opalescent jade bowls for sale.
