The Birth of Modern Greece, 1675–1919


30 September 2021 – 7 February 2022


In 2021, Greece is celebrating the bicentenary of its independence; it was also 200 years ago, in 1821, that the Venus de Milo first entered the Louvre’s collections. This exhibition traces the cultural, diplomatic and artistic ties between Greece and France in the 19th century and shows how the rediscovery of Greek antiquity changed the European view of Greece.

Organised by:

Marina Lambraki Plaka, director of the National Gallery–Alexandros Soutzos Museum, Athens; Anastasia Lazaridou, director of Archaeological Museums, Exhibitions and Educational Programmes, Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sports, Athens; Jean-Luc Martinez, president-director of the Musée du Louvre, assisted by Débora Guillon.
