Each season, the Louvre features a series of temporary exhibitions, each the result of the latest expert research.
Delacroix and Eugène
The Man Behind the Artist
For the first time, ten students from the École du Louvre have been invited to conceive an exhibition at the Musée National Eugène-Delacroix. This project was an opportunity to examine little-known facets of the artist and provide a fresh perspective on the collection.

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.
