Home>Louvre - DNP Museum Lab - Masterpieces of Spanish Painting

Discover the collection of Spanish art in the Musée du Louvre thanks to the multimedia displays designed as part of the Louvre – DNP Museum Lab project. This interactive and fun approach gives you the keys to understanding masterpieces by Zurbarán, Murillo and Goya.

Denon wing, 1st floor, rooms 25 and 26

Multimedia at the service of mediation

In the Murillo room (26) and the neighbouring room  (Denon wing, 1st floor), explore the collection of Spanish paintings through innovative digital mediation especially produced for the rooms of the Louvre. Understand the works better and learn how this little-known collection was put together.

Masterpieces of Spanish painting

This display aims to help the visitor understand the paintings he is looking at: it is a question of answering the questions he might have faced with this group of works. In order to give him reference points as regards Spanish painting, the display offers commentary on the most emblematic works exhibited in the room, giving inforamtion that could not be guessed just by looking at the paintings. These keys to interpretation also help the visitor better understand other Spanish paintings. A largely visual interface and mutiple access points to information enable the transition from an initial intuitive approach to more educational content.

Spanish art in the Musée du Louvre, the history of a collection

The collection of Spanish paintings of the Musée du Louvre evolved over time and according to the vagaries of history. This multimedia display gives an overview of this evolution from the 17th century to the present and is organised into twelve major periods to help the visitor better understand how a museum collection is put together.
