Textiles from Dunhuang in French Collections concerns two of the most prestigious collections (the Musee Guimet and the Bibliotheque nationale de France), encompassing all the pieces brought back by Paul Pelliot in 1909 after his famous expedition in Central Asia. This publication will greatly enrich the international project focusing on the comprehensive study of the textiles discovered at the beginning of the nineteenth century in Mogao Caves, near Dunhuang. It provides us, for the first time, with an exhaustive inventory including several dozens of unpublished or recently restored materials. In this work, mobile paintings, banners and sutra covers are studied by the best textile specialists and by expert connoisseurs of these collections. These treasures significantly enhance our knowledge of the ancient techniques, religious practices, and cultural and trading exchanges from Dunhuang and the mythic path now called 'the Silk Road'.
