"Naples à Paris" and "Le trésor de Notre-Dame de Paris" at Louvre Museum

Why do we recommend that you don't miss these exhibitions?
The Louvre Museum is just over 500 meters from the Relais Saint Honoré. With 460,000 works, including 35,000 on display, it's a must-see for travelers. But devoting 30 seconds to each work, it would take 36 days, "working" 8 hours a day, to go through them all. So you'll have to choose what you want to see.
The Louvre is currently presenting two exceptional temporary exhibitions, which we visited: "Naples à Paris" and "Le trésor de Notre-Dame de Paris". A look at these exhibitions.

"Naples à Paris"

For the year 2023, the Louvre Museum has entered into an unprecedented partnership with the prestigious Capodimonte Museum in Naples.
Capodimonte is one of the few museums on the peninsula whose collections enable us to present all the schools of Italian painting. The exhibition features some 70 works by some of the greatest names in Italian painting, including Titian, Caravaggio and Michelangelo.
The works are presented in the Paris museum's permanent collections. The two sets of Italian paintings from the 15th to 17th centuries are among the most important in the world.

Altarpiece of Saint Vincent Ferrier - Colantonio, 1456-1458

Saint Jerome in his study - Colantonio - 1445-1450

Jerome of Stridon (Saint Jerome 347-420), is said to have encountered a lion wounded by a thorn in the paw, who let him nurse it back to health. The legend goes on to say that the lion became Jerome's pet.

The Flagellation - Caravaggio, 1607

Charles de Bourbon's departure for Spain - Antonio Joli, 1759. On becoming King of Spain, Charles de Bourbon ceded the kingdoms of Naples and Sicily to his son in 1759.

"Le Trésor de Notre Dame de Paris"

This is a unique and historic exhibition, as most of the treasures on display are kept in the sacristy of Notre-Dame, which is currently closed. Fortunately spared from the flames during the fire of 2019, the treasure is intact.
The exhibition features liturgical objects, relics, manuscripts and precious objects donated out of devotion. The collection traces a thousand-year history, from its medieval origins to its 19th-century renaissance under the impetus of Viollet-le-Duc.
The diversity of the treasure is on display in over 120 works. It includes rare manuscripts and artistic representations, as the original liturgical silverware was destroyed during the Revolution of 1789. The First Empire period saw the reconstruction of the treasure, with the addition of notable relics including the Crown of Thorns and the Wood of the Cross.
The exhibition also explores the treasure's earlier history, dating back to Merovingian times. The exhibition is based on inventories, historical accounts, works of art and historical documents. It offers a glimpse of this vanished wealth, comparable to the objects created for Notre-Dame in the 19th century.

Gregory of Tours' History of the Franks, a parchment manuscript completed in 591, is a highly valuable historical document.

The precept of Louis the Pious, son of Charlemagne, is a legal document made up of ordinances and laws.

Here you'll find the objects used at the coronation of Napoleon 1st, all of which can be seen in David's painting "The Coronation of Napoleon 1st" (below).
