Naples in Paris

26 May 2023

Once a hunting lodge for the Bourbon monarchs, the Museo di Capodimonte in Naples is now home to one of the world’s most significant collections of Italian painting. This exhibition at the Musée Louvre in Paris (7 June–8 January 2024) brings more than 60 masterpieces from the museum to France. Highlights of the paintings on view include Parmigianino’s Portrait of a Young Girl (or Antea) (1524–27) and Guido Reni’s Atalanta and Hippomenes (1620–25). The Capodimonte’s collection of Italian drawings – the second largest in the world (after the Uffizi) – is also well represented here through works such as Michelangelo’s A Group of Soldiers (1546–50) and Raphael’s Moses Before the Burning Bush (1514). Find out more on the Louvre’s website.
