L'Ecole offers a regularly scheduled program of Evening conversations, from 8pm to 10pm. These evenings give 35 people the chance to learn from and share with two experts on a particular topic.
The next Evening Conversation will be held in Paris on Thursday, October 20 and will be about The Second Empire : Between Splendor and Extravagance.
Echoing the " Spectacular Second Empire " exhibition at the Musée d'Orsay, we propose to live again an era of great changes, both in the society and the artistic creation. Splendid and castigated, the reign of Napoleon III was nevertheless a prosperous age for luxury industries, particularly for jewelry.
