Synopsis: The new galleries devoted to 17th- and 18th-century decorative arts in the Louvre opened in May 2014. Some two thousand items are displayed in nearly 20,000 square feet of exhibition space, representing one of the world’s finest collections of furnishings and objets d’art from the reign of Louis XIV through that of Louis XVI. The new halls are organized chronologically and feature spectacular period rooms that recreate the magnificent wood-paneled interiors of the lavish residences and princely palaces of Paris in the 18th century. These reconstitutions provide the setting for the remarkable collection of furnishings in the department of decorative arts in the Louvre. This exhaustive catalogue beautifully illustrates the museum’s new displays in breathtaking detail and is a must-have for any art lover.
