If collecting is the art of juxtaposing works from different eras and places, Gabrielle Chanel had a certain taste for the exercise. Her interest in classical civilization, especially that of ancient Greece, converged with her love of Chinese antiquities, which she collected throughout her life, beginning with Coromandel screens. In her apartment at 31 rue Cambon, Mademoiselle created a dialogue between the bust of a Greek statue and some 18th-century Chinese vases, comparing their clean and powerful lines.
