Exposition Leonard de Vinci au Louvre

Description

It has been 500 years since the death of this Florentine genius, as just as long that his works have been admired, and the Louvre Museum is paying homage to him with an exhibition from 24 October 2019 to 24 February 2020. A man of many talents, Leonardo da Vinci excelled in philosophy, drawing and painting, but was equally brilliant as an inventor and scientist. Composed of 5 master paintings, multiple designs for hydraulic engines and dismantlable bridges, and a number of manuscripts, this exhibition explores the intellectual, human and artistic path of Leonardo da Vinci.

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.
