Description

Artiste prolifique qui s’est illustré en peinture, dessin et gravure, Albrecht Altdorfer est à l’honneur le temps d’une exposition organisée au musée du Louvre, du 1 octobre au 4 janvier 2021, en collaboration avec le musée de l’Albertina de Vienne. Auteur d’une œuvre méconnue et pourtant aussi riche que diverse, ce maître du 16e siècle proche des cercles humanistes, se distingue par son originalité et son inventivité.

Un parcours organisé chronologiquement dévoile plusieurs étapes de son œuvre depuis les commandes de l’empereur Maximilien jusqu’à ses travaux d’architecture.

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.
