Louvre Abu Dhabi is opening a new global exhibition “Versailles and the World” on January 26th.


Organised in partnership with Musée national des châteaux de Versailles et de Trianon, with the support of France Muséums, the exhibition will showcase the history of the royal court at Versailles.


Visitors will have the opportunity to explore more than 100 artworks from the collections of Louvre Abu Dhabi, the UK’s Royal Collection Trust, and 17 French lenders including the Musée National des Châteaux de Versailles et de Trianon, alongside a wide-ranging cultural programme.


By focusing on the reception, interpretation and appropriation of foreign cultures by the court in an era of scientific emulation, the exhibition will also explore how the Palace of Versailles became a crucible for intellectual encounter and cultural exchange between the French monarchy, the court, and foreign ambassadors and diplomatic missions during the reign of three French monarchs: Louis XIV, Louis XV and Louis XVI.


Entrance to the exhibition is included in the museum’s admission ticket. The exhibition will run until Jun 4th, 2022.
