in detail

This presentation of the handsomest pieces from the Louvre’s collection also highlights the publication of this regional collection of some 600 works, the outcome of ten years’ research. Thus this is the opportunity to offer the public fresh discoveries and to address such issues as the distinction between Luca Cambiaso’s originals and the many copies that have found their way into the corpus; as well as being of interest to specialists and connoisseurs, these questions are instructive for visitors as a whole.
