BERLIN.- The Tchoban Foundation is showing 65 art works of Hôtel particulier buildings – prestigious town houses, which were built in the first part of the 18th century and characterize Parisian architecture until today.
After Sergei Tchoban, architect and founder of the Tchoban Foundation for Architectural Drawing, showed his collection of 24 drawings at the École des Beaux-Arts in 2011 with the exhibition “À la source de l’ Antique. La collection de Sergei Tchoban”, the two institutions now continue their collaboration, this time with a selection of works from Paris that are being displayed in Berlin.

The displayed hand-drawn views, cross sections and floor plans are part of the large collection of École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts, which is internationally acclaimed both for its singular monumental architecture as well as for the standard it sets in education.
The École’s collection is a treasure-trove of hand-drawn works, only rivaled in quantity and quality by the Louvre. The exquisite works on paper span a range from the Renaissance until today, presenting masters such as Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, Rubens, Poussin and Bucher side by side.
