Nasser D. Khalili is one of the greatest art collectors in the world. He is a multi-collector, since the works of art he has patiently acquired over almost 50 years are divided into eight major collections, including the largest collection of private Islamic art in the world, but also collections of Japanese art, Swedish textiles and Spanish damascene metalwork. Through art, which he considers the only truly universal language, Khalili seeks above all to advance intercultural dialogue. A British citizen born in Iran to a Jewish family, Khalili has long been involved in this fight through his art collections, which he lends worldwide, but also through his philanthropic work. He founded the Maimonides Interfaith Foundation in 1995 to promote dialogue and understanding among Jews, Christians and Muslims around the world. That is because Nasser D. Khalili is convinced, and so are Les Napoleons, that art and culture can unite the world and make us advance together.
