Louvre Museum (Paris)

The works showcased in this gallery are nothing but a short glimpse at the richness of the Louvre's collections of antiquities, at the root of civilization. Others will follow at a later stage, notably from the Egyptian and Etruscan collections.


The Louvre's collections of Italian Paintings rank among the finest in the world outside Italy itself. The 600+ paintings exhibited, including many masterpieces coming from the major Italian artistic centres, recount the different stages of its evolution: the Primitives, still stamped with medieval style, the Renaissance pictural revolution, the mannerist delicateness, the baroque vigour and tumult.
