Room Michelangelo Gallery, Italy

Denon wing - Ground floor - Room 403 - Michelangelo gallery


The 19th-century Galerie Mollien (now the Michelangelo gallery) was based on the Salle des Caryatides and served as the official lobby for the Salle des Etats on the first floor. It now houses part of the museum's Italian sculpture collection, notably Michelangelo's Slaves. Carved for his first version of the tomb of Pope Julius II, they were left unfinished, emerging from the rough-hewn stone.
