Room Salle des Etats, Italy

Denon wing - 1st floor - Room 711 - Mona Lisa room

Italian painting

Designed by Lefuel, the Salle des Etats was built to accommodate the major legislative sessions presided over by Napoleon III from 1859. In 1878, the hall became part of the museum. The original decorations have disappeared, but the recent refurbishment by Lorenzo Piqueras has provided a new setting for the Mona Lisa and Venetian Renaissance paintings.
