Qatar: Al-Thani collection to exhibit in France
In another dispay of Al-Thani ‘soft power’, representatives of the Qatar ruling family have offered €20m to exhibit some of the more than 6,000 items from the Al-Thani collection in France over the next 20 years. Paris daily Le Monde reported that the deal will install an exhibition at the historic Hôtel de la Marine in Paris, which is due to reopen in 2020 following a €100m refurbishment. The travelling collection includes items amassed by Sheikh Hamad Bin Abdullah Al-Thani, some of which are currently on show at the Chateau de Fontainebleau, until 8 October.
