Upon entering the Celebrating and Enjoying room, the visitor is met with Jean-François Lorta’s dancing muses complemented by Valentin de Bologne’s painting The Concert.

The Musée national des beaux arts du Québec is serving up a taste of the Louvre’s art feast in Paris.

The Musée has taken an eclectic sampling of the Louvre’s expansive collection and serves a delectable amuse bouche of 275 works spanning 5,000 years. The exhibition is fresh, light, and satisfying; it won’t leave visitors feeling over-stuffed and ready for bed.
