The ‘Naples in Paris’ Exhibition at the Louvre Museum

From June 7, 2023, to January 8, 2024, the Louvre Museum in Paris presents an extraordinary exhibition titled “Naples in Paris“. This exceptional collaboration with the Capodimonte Museum in Naples, one of the most prestigious pinacothecas in Europe, offers a unique opportunity for art enthusiasts to explore the richness of Italian art.

The origin of the exhibition

This exhibition is the result of an outstanding partnership between two major institutions in the art world. The Louvre Museum and the Capodimonte Museum, one of Italy’s largest museums, have joined forces to present some of the greatest masterpieces of Italian painting. Nearly 70 major works are on display in three distinct rooms: the Carré Salon, the Chapel Room, and the Clock Room. Among them, you can admire works by masters such as Titian, Caravaggio, Michelangelo, Giuliano Romano, and Masaccio.

A Journey Through the Ages of Art

“Naples in Paris” offers a unique experience of dialogue between two collections of Italian paintings among the most important in the world. The works from the Capodimonte Museum highlight all the schools of Italian painting, from the Florentine Renaissance of the 15th century to the 17th century.

The current director of the Louvre, Laurence De Cars, stated, “The most beautiful masterpieces of the Capodimonte Museum will engage in a dialogue with those of the Louvre, within the museum itself, in an unprecedented arrangement.” Visitors will thus have privileged access to a selection of remarkable works, including the masterpieces from the former Farnese collection exhibited in the Clock Room.
