Manipulation et soclage d'œuvres d'art de l'exposition Pharaon au Musée Granet par Bovis Fine Art


Perfectly organized logistics, delicate and careful handling, were the watchwords of the specialized technicians of Bovis Fine Art who packed, transported, moved and installed very fragile works of great historical value, at the Granet Museum in Aix-en-Provence as part of the “Pharaon, Osiris et la momie” exhibition.

The exhibition, which opened on September 19, 2020 for a period of five months, features 150 pieces from the museum’s Egyptian antiquities reserves, a very rich collection complemented by many pieces loaned by the Louvre Museum, the Dijon Museum, Avignon, Guéret, as well as European institutions such as the Rijksmuseum van Oudheden in the Netherlands, the Heidelberg Museum in Germany and the Turin Museum in Italy.

We are very proud to have contributed to the success of this prestigious exhibition, thanks to the know-how and experience of two basing specialists and three Bovis Fine Art works of art handling specialists.

Coordination of the exhibition in key steps

Nature of the service: Packing, crating, transport, assistance to the two Louvre conveyors, delivery and installation of priceless works, from the museum collection or loaned by prestigious French and European museums

Constraints: Handling of very fragile old pieces, from the heaviest and most voluminous – their weight up to 400 kg and the height 2 m high – to the smallest, thin and delicate
