From One Louvre to Another

Opening a Museum for Everyone

This catalogue was published to accompany the first temporary exhibition at Louvre Abu Dhabi and contains more than 200 images. Through a number of scholarly essays, the book presents a detailed historical account of the formation of Louis XIV’s royal collection and the subsequent transformation of the Louvre Palace from a royal residence to a center for practicing artists, before finally becoming a national museum.
