Room Grande Galerie, Italy
Denon wing - 1st floor - Room 710, 712, 716 - Grande Galerie
Built between 1595 and 1610, this gallery originally connected the Louvre to the Tuileries palace. The engaged columns along the sides were added during the Empire by Percier and Fontaine. Shortened by a third during the Second Empire, the gallery now houses collections of Italian painting.
Due to public protests in the area, the Tuileries Garden will be closed on Saturday, June 6, 2020
Musée du Louvre : our teams are working on measures to ensure the safety of all people on the premises and are preparing for the museum's reopening on July 6 (bookings can be made online as of June 15).
Thank you for your understanding.
