The Musée du Louvre is an EPA, or Etablissement Public Administratif, a status that gives it administrative autonomy. Although the museum is largely financed by the state, it also relies on other sources of income, which make up more than a third of its budget. The Musée du Louvre relies on the generosity of its patrons and donors to carry out many of its missions and projects.

Masterpieces at the Poissy prison
In January 2011, life-sized reproductions of ten paintings from the Musée du Louvre were unveiled at the Poissy prison near Paris. The exhibition, entitled “Au-delà des murs” (Beyond the Walls), was staged by inmates in cooperation with the Louvre and presented by writer Luc Lang and scenographer Philippe Maffre.
