Each season, the Louvre features a series of temporary exhibitions, each the result of the latest expert research.
Objects in Painting, Souvenir of Morocco
In connection with "Medieval Morocco: An Empire from Africa to Spain", the exhibition compares and contrasts paintings and drawings by Eugène Delacroix with objects that the artist brought back from his trip to North Africa in 1832.

A Greek Island and Gateway to the East
World famous for the now-gone Colossus—one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World—and the Knights of Saint John in the Middle Ages, Rhodes was a pivotal trading hub between the Aegean and the East since ancient times.

The exhibition “Voyages” features a varied selection of artworks, chosen by Philippe Djian from the collections of several curatorial departments at the Louvre. It provides a forum for comparing artworks along a number of recurring themes, a source of reflection—and sometimes inspiration—for the author.

The Animal Kingdom in Ancient Egypt
