"For centuries, French identity has been linked to the sea. From the maritime trade and the global exploration of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries to the elegant French Line ships and underwater exploration of the modern age. France has looked seaward for economic, political, and cultural enrichment. Throughout history this liaison has been fashioned by an inimitable style that celebrates innovation and design. In Rendez-vous with the Sea more than 170 works of maritime art from the collections of the Mus?e national de la Marine in Paris vividly illustrate the savoir-faire of French style and extol the country's enduring romance with the sea. This book chronicles the Mus?e's historic collection, providing readers a rare chance to experience France's thrilling maritime heritage. With almost 200 images, the book paints a unique picture of the French experience with the sea. With an essay by PEM curator Daniel Finamore and H?l?ne Tromparent, Conservateur du Patrimoine at the Mus?e national de la Marine." - Publisher.
