When Sirén returned from his long Chinese sojourn to Europe in the spring of 1923, he made Paris his base. His acquisitions of Chinese objects were exhibited at the Musée Cernuschi. The collection was for sale and most of the exhibits was acquired by the newly founded Museum of far eastern Antiquities in Stockholm. During this time he was working on several publications which formed pioneering work in the study of architecture and sculpture: Walls and Gates of Peking, 1924, Chinese Sculpture from the Fifth to the Fourteenth Century, 1925 and The Imperial palaces of Peking, 1926.
