From one Louvre to another opening a museum for everyone

‘From one Louvre to another opening a museum for everyone’ tells the fascinating stories of the origins of the Louvre: from the royal collections of Louis XIV, displayed in the gardens and royal apartments in the palace of Versailles, to the pioneering artists’ studios and workshops of the Louvre in Paris, and finally to the museum’s grand opening to the public following the political upheaval of the French Revolution.

This is Louvre Abu Dhabi’s first temporary exhibition and includes 150 masterpieces from the Château de Versailles and the Louvre’s earliest collections, including painting, sculpture, furniture and ceramics gathered from across the world.

The exhibition is curated by Jean-Luc Martinez, President of the Musée du Louvre, and Juliette Trey, curator of seventeenth and eighteenth-century drawings and prints.
