Each season, the Louvre features a series of temporary exhibitions, each the result of the latest expert research.
Archaeology Goes Graphic
The Louvre’s Petite Galerie is a special space set aside for art and cultural education for all ages, with a selection of artworks representing different periods and techniques in yearly exhibitions—an eye-opening experience which serves as a starting point for an exploration of the whole museum. For its fourth season, the exhibition “Archaeology Goes Graphic” will spark a dialogue between archaeology and the 2018–19 guest art form—comic book art.
Musée du Louvre, until July 1, 2019
France-Romania Season 2019
Embroidery of Byzantine Tradition from Romania
On the occasion of the symbolic loan by Romania of King Stephen the Great’s “Battle flag of Saint Georges,” this exhibition seeks to highlight the exceptional character of Romanian collections of embroidery of Byzantine tradition, jewel of both Romanian and universal heritage.
Musée du Louvre, until July 29, 2019
From the Hittite Empire to the Arameans
The Hittite empire, a great rival power of ancient Egypt, ruled over Anatolia and held sway over the Levant until about 1200 BC. Its demise gave rise to Neo-Hittite and Aramean kingdoms in modern-day Turkey and Syria, heirs of the political, cultural, and artistic traditions of the fallen empire. The exhibition invites visitors to rediscover the mythic sites of this forgotten civilization, such as the majestic remains of the Tell Halaf site, located near the current Turco-Syrian border.
Musée du Louvre, until August 12, 2019
In the Studio
Creation at Work
Thanks to exceptional loans from French and European museums, combined with the collection of the Musée Delacroix, this exhibition presents works by Eugène Delacroix and his contemporaries, alongside works by 19th- and 20th-century artists. It brings together finished works and their preparatory studies, also linked with the objects, casts, prints, and photographs that nourished them in entering the studio space.
