Bathsheba at Her Bath,
From April 2016 to February 2017, the Musée du Louvre is renovating the galleries devoted to northern European paintings from the 17th to the 19th century (rooms 17 to 39 and A to F, 2nd floor, Richelieu wing).
The museum is also preparing an exhibition dedicated to Vermeer (22 February–22 May 2017).
A selection of masterworks by artists such as Peter Paul Rubens, Anthony van Dyck, Jacob Jordaens, Johannes Vermeer, Rembrandt, Frans Hals, and Jacob van Ruisdael are on display on the 2nd floor of the Sully wing (rooms 20 to 22) and on the 1st floor of the Denon wing (Salle des Sept-Cheminées) throughout the renovations.
Portraits, still lifes, religious paintings, genre scenes, and landscapes illustrate the scope of the Louvre’s extensive collection of 17th-century northern paintings.
Our staff will be at your service for the duration of the renovations to ensure optimal visiting conditions. We appreciate your patience during this time.
