World Art TreasuresThe principal purpose of World Art Treasures is to promulgate the discovery and love of art. Thanks to the 100,000 slides belonging to the Jacques-Edouard Berger Foundation, all of them devoted to art, and including the main civilizations, such as Egypt, China, Japan, India, Europe, its purpose is to offer a different approach to art through Internet. Taking advantage of the specificity of a multidimensional and multilevel network, it is an attempt to shed new light on art and a new way of contemplating it. In contrast to the usual way of setting up a small or huge data banks according to a documentary or historical perspective, our ambition is to build a specific approach for each itinerary, each time taking into account and emphasizing a specific and original trait in order not only to provide information, but to give birth to give birth to a truly new experience thanks to cutting-edge technology.
