The Tous mécènes! campaign for the Apollo Kitharoidos is over
Thanks to the generosity of 6,600 donors, the musée du Louvre has gathered over 1,285,000 euros for the acquisition of the Apollo Kitharoidos from Pompeii. A tremendous thank you for your participation that allows this “national treasure” to join French national collections.
The Louvre also warmly thanks the Société des Amis du Louvre for their exceptional donation in favor of the Apollo.
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, the mastaba of Akhethotep in 2016, or King Francois I's Book of Hours in 2017. 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 at Fall on www.tousmecenes.fr/en!
