Explore "Love" at the Louvre-Lens Museum

Only 35 minutes from our Morpheus Hotel, we invite you to discover an exhibition that captivates hearts! The Love exhibition from 26 September 2018 to 21 January 2019.

Ways of loving are varied according to contexts, places and times. The love relationship has changed and has always been a source of inspiration for artists.
From original sin to the quest for freedom, the exhibition Love evokes adoration, passion, gallantry, libertine or romanticism. Crossing the techniques and civilizations of 250 works of art, this scenographic story is punctuated with literary quotations and film extracts. The exhibition reveals paintings by Memling, Fragonard, Delacroix, or sculptures by Rodin, Claudel and Niki de Saint Phalle.
 
The exhibition opens with seven thematic chapters.

CHAPTER 1
The supposed dangers of female seduction.

CHAPTER 2
With the advent of Christianity and the subject of worship.

CHAPTER 3
The passion with The Lady of the 15th century who becomes the suzerain of her lover, and by her kiss, softens the chosen one of her heart.

CHAPTER 4
The relationship or happiness of shared love under the reign of gallantry with the decorative arts.

CHAPTER 5
Men and women seek to combine all pleasures, between gallantry and libertine. From Don Juan to Casanova from the 17th to the 18th century.

CHAPTER 6
Romanticism or the exaltation of passion by poets and dramaturgies with Apollo and Hyacinth or Romeo and Juliet.

CHAPTER 7
The freedom and acceptance of loving marriage by 19th century society sketches a victory of loving consent over social contingencies.
