Greenlit: Treasures of the Louvre, BBC4

Treasures Of The Louvre – Paris-based writer Andrew Hussey travels through the glorious art and surprising history of an extraordinary French institution to show that the story of the Louvre is the story of France.

As well as exploring the masterpieces of painters such as Veronese, Rubens, David, Chardin, Gericault and Delacroix, he also examines the changing face of the Louvre itself through its architecture and design. A medieval fortress, renaissance palace, luxurious home to kings, emperors and more recently civil servants, today it attracts eight million visitors a year. The documentary also reflects the very latest transformation of the Louvre – the Museum’s recently opened Islamic Gallery.
