New Donation Campaign for the Acquisition of a “Work of Major Heritage Value”


In the wake of the Tous mécènes ! (Become a patron!) donation campaigns launched by the museum in 2010 for a painting by Cranach, in 2011 for the restoration of two treasures from Cairo, in 2012 for the acquisition of two magnificent ivory statuettes thought lost, and in 2013 for the restoration of the Winged Victory of Samothrace, the Louvre is once again appealing to the generosity of the general public to raise one million euros to add to its national collection with the purchase of the famous Teschen Table, a masterpiece of 18th-century decorative arts and monument commemorating a key moment in European history.

Medieval Morocco. An empire from Africa to Spain


This major exhibition, presented by the Louvre in association with the FNM, Morocco’s national museum foundation, encourages a reassessment of the period from the eleventh to the fifteenth centuries, when the civilization of Western Islam was at the height of its glory, as much in terms of its artistic production as its place in history. A succession of dynasties - Almoravid, Almohad and Marinid - fashioned a cultural and political space centered on Morocco, gaining control of an empire stretching from sub-Saharan Africa to Andalusian Spain. This empire’s influence, unifying for the first time Islamic communities in the West, was felt as far away as the Near East. Bringing together nearly 300 works, the exhibition includes many of the most beautiful examples of this period’s achievements in areas such as architectural decoration, textiles, ceramics and calligraphy, illustrating this long and complex history, both essential to understanding contemporary Morocco and the very source of its modernity.

This major undertaking, with a budget of four million euros, has received the support of Nippon Television Holdings, F.
