Join the Tous mécènes ! campaigns

Launched in 2010 for the acquisition of The Three Graces by Lucas Cranach, the Tous mécènes ! crowdfunding campaigns have become a major annual event. Each year, several thousand of you have contributed to the conservation or acquisition of major artworks such as the Winged Victory of Samothrace in 2013, the Breteuil Table, also known as the Teschen Table, in 2014, Saly's Cupid in 2015, or the mastaba of Akhethotep in 2016. Your commitment to the Louvre is vital.

Through these campaigns, you play an active part in safeguarding and enriching our heritage. Discover the new Louvre campaign each year in October on www.tousmecenes.fr/en!
