Jean-Michel Othoniel au Louvre – La rose du Louvre

From May 25, 2019 to February 24, 2020, Jean-Michel Othoniel   will present his installation of six original ink paintings on gold leaf amidst the Cour Puget’s masterpieces of 17th and 18th-century garden statuary.

The artist’s works were inspired by the rose Rubens painted in his Wedding of Marie de’ Medici to Henri IV (1621-1625).

He sees the rose as an emblem of the museum.

A triumphant symbol of power and passion. Rubens’ unique interpretation of the ‘ queen of flowers‘ represents a woman’s destiny her beauty, and her death-defying love, as well as the history of both France and the Museum.

Jean-Michel Othoniel’s installation invites visitors to take a walk through a dreamlike universe of paintings, gardens and sculptures, and to discover an extraordinary herbarium. (From Musée du Louvre)
