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.
In line with the measures taken by the government to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the Musée du Louvre and Musée National Eugène Delacroix are closed until further notice.
