It features up to 60 of the artist’s paintings, drawings, and sketches illustrating the eight big cat species: tiger, lion, leopard, cheetah, cougar, jaguar, snow leopard and clouded leopard. Offering a cross-disciplinary approach that brings together art, design, and science, this exhibition provides a visual framework for a powerful conservation message and touches on Dallet’s two-decade-long design collaboration with Hermès.
The collaboration between Hermès and Panthera was forged after Pierre-Alexis Dumas, artistic director of Hermès, met Panthera’s founder Thomas Kaplan, who is equally as passionate about the conservation of wild cats as the art that depicts them.
