Masterpieces of Islamic Art from the Aga Khan Museum
A selection of items from the splendid Aga Khan collection – a set of folios from the "Book of Kings" of Shah Tahmasp (the most famous 16th-century Persian manuscript), two wonderfully preserved medieval garments, and various examples of calligraphy – reflect the aesthetic exuberance of Islamic art from Spain to India.

The visual arts are closely linked to the written word in Iranian culture, in which the predominant theme is the greatness of the divine creation that is the world. This connection, manifest both in painting and in the decorative arts (whose motifs illustrate literary metaphors), intensified during the Safavid period.
Three Empires of Islam: Masterpieces of Ottoman, Safavid and Mughal Art from the Louvre Museum
Ceramics, metalwork, rugs, and manuscripts from the Ottoman, Safavid, and Mughal empires… This mini-site presents the main items from the Department of Islamic Art featured in the exhibition entitled "Three Empires of Islam: Masterpieces of Ottoman, Safavid, and Mughal Art from the Louvre Museum".
This mini-site explores the origins and influence of the ancient city of Babylon, and the way in which the myth grew out of historical reality. This new approach to the ancient city is based on research that has made it possible to trace a history that is no longer dependent on biblical or late classical sources.
This mini-site presents masterpieces by Mantegna including The Crucifixion, the Madonna della Vittoria, Saint Sebastian, and the paintings in Isabella d'Este's Studiolo... Paintings, drawings, engravings, manuscripts, and sculptures illustrate the career of this extraordinary artist—the chief proponent of Renaissance ideas in northern Italy. This site also explores the influences behind his work, and the legacy he left to succeeding generations of artists.
The Louvre is open every day (except Tuesday) from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
