Why is it famous? The incredible journey of the Louvre's icons

French version


At the Louvre Museum, we sometimes meet visitors who comment on a particular painting or sculpture and exclaim: that is well known, that is very well known, that is worldfamous!

Indeed. From the Sully wing celebrating ancient Egypt to the Denon wing housing the Mona Lisa, Napoleon's Rite and the Raft of the Medusa, the Louvre offers an opportunity to explore centuries of transformations, to witness the most formidable pictorial revolutions, and to cross a breathtaking gallery of masterpieces: the Victory of Samothrace, the Venus de Milo, the Nave of the Fools of Bosch, the Self-Portrait of Dürer and that of Rembrandt - and many other prodigious paintings by Botticelli, Raphael, Rubens, Poussin, Vermeer, Watteau, or even Fragonard !
