ENGLISH VERSION. The Louvre’s collection shows the wealth and diversity of artistic creation in the Islamic world. In 2012, this collection, one of the richest and most beautiful in the world, was shown for the first time in the department’s new rooms, designed by the architects Rudy Ricciotti and Mario Bellini. This project was the most ambitious undertaken since the creation of the Grand Louvre. On two levels of the museum, these new spaces now enable a comprehensive deployment of artworks spanning the 1,300-year history of lands spread over three continents, from Spain to northern India. To mark the department’s reopening, this album offers an overview through the masterworks of the collection. In coedition with musée du Louvre.
