  "Beirut Hidden Treasures" a new Book By Hani J. Samaha now available at Librarie Antoine .
    Book Foreword by Christopher Payne

The incredible success of Hani Samaha’s six superbly illustrated books on the decorative arts in Lebanon has earned him the reputation as the impresario of luxury living in Lebanon. For nearly a decade, Samaha has carefully hunted down the most exquisite antiques held in private collections up and down the country and with his unrivalled access to the residences of their elite owners, unveiled for the first time ever these extraordinary cultural icons.

In “Beirut, Hidden Treasures”, Samaha uncovers a new treasure chest of masterpieces in over forty four chapters and offers the reader a rare view of the magnificent detail that makes these objets d’art such sought after prizes at the world’s most prestigious auction houses. Such is the extent of Samaha’s significant finds, that world-renowned antique expert and former director at Sotheby’s Christopher Payne had the pleasure to write the foreword.

Stunning images capture the very heart and soul of their long since departed creators, breathing new life into the silent sights and sounds depicted in each legendary piece. This unique reference book sheds light on the finest bronze ormolu work by Messagé, the sensuous lines of Béfort Jeune, the extravagant courtly scenes painted by Poitevin and the aristocratic largesse of important silverware by Robert Garrard hidden in Beirut’s most prestigious residences.

Samaha’s upbringing within the family of antique dealers in Beirut has equipped him with a unique knowledge of each genre’s history, style, provenance and authentication which he shares with the reader in flowing ribbons of tantalizing information across the two hundred and seventy two sumptuously illustrated pages of “Beirut, Hidden Treasures”. An heirloom in its own right, “Beirut, Hidden Treasures” is to be cherished and handed down for generations to come, as the ultimate record of Lebanon’s enlightened entrepreneurial past laying the foundations for some of the most magnificent collections ever held in private hands.
