Rooms in the Musee Camondo

Musee Camondo Rooms

Rooms in the Musee Camondo are furnished as if they were still lived in.  The original owner of this circa-1914 house, the Count de Camondo, was a major collector of 18th-century French decorative arts.  His only son was killed in the First World War, so the count bequethed the building to the state, asking that it become a museum. – Olivier Bernier

Key to Eternity ~ Art Work

Art Work

This image is all about the mystery of time. The lovers shown in negative form are Time Lords responsible for the smooth passage of time, and the key to eternity. He wears a blindfold to avoid distraction and to concentrate his thoughts on his important task.

According to the language of flowers the White Poplar is said to represent time and the maiden wears a crown of its timeless leaves with their brilliant silver undersides. The water carrier represents the new age – ‘Age of Aquarius’- and the past by the ancient stone circle within the everlasting clock.

The girl sitting beside the clock carries a needle perhaps to put a ‘stitch in time’. The wise old owl looks on as the dandelion clocks shed their seeds continuing the everlasting circle of life. This is only one interpretation…
