Description

The Louvre takes the bold and successful step of putting archaeology and comic book art into this exhibition at the Petite Galerie du Louvre. Through story boards drawn by Enki Bilal, Nicolas de Crécy, Jul and others, visitors discover Antiquity and gain a better understanding of the true history of these treasures through fiction. Each object is part of the collections of the Louvre and make up the 4th season of the Petite Galerie, a space for artistic and cultural education often linked to school syllabuses.

Musée du Louvre

Every trip to the capital deserves a visit to the Louvre to discover the wealth of treasures it contains. The museum houses western works of art dating from the Middle Ages to 1848, in addition to collections of ancient oriental, Egyptian, Greek, Etruscan and Roman civilizations, as well as graphic and Islamic arts. From room to room, the former royal palace reveals its masterpieces to the public: the Mona Lisa, The Raft of the Medusa, the Venus de Milo, and The Winged Victory of Samothrace. In total, there are 35,000 works to be discovered or re-discovered! With its eight hundred year old history, the Louvre has been influenced by numerous architectural trends, from the medieval fortress of the 12th century to the glass pyramid by Pei (1989). The latest addition, housing the Islamic arts section, was designed by architects Mario Bellini and Rudy Ricciotti. The undulating glass canopy covers the Visconti courtyard, flooding the 2,800 m² new wing with light. A visit to the museum is particularly pleasant at night: the Louvre is less crowded and visitors can enjoy stunning night-time views of Pei’s glass pyramid, the Cour Carrée and the Seine.
