The Louvre Museum (French: Musée du Louvre] is the world’s largest museum and a historic monument in Paris, France. A central landmark of the city, it is located on the Right Bank of the Seine in the city’s 1st arrondissement (district or ward). Approximately 38,000 objects from prehistory to the 21st century are exhibited over an area of 72,735 square metres.

 

卢浮宫(法语:Musée du Louvre)位于法国巴黎市中心的塞纳河边,原是法国的王宫,现在是卢浮宫博物馆,常年展出的展品数量达3.5万件,包括雕塑、绘画、美术工艺及古代东方、古代埃及和古希腊罗马等7个门类,主要收藏1860年以前的艺术作品与考古文物。

 

The museum opened on 10 August 1793 with an exhibition of 537 paintings, the majority of the works being royal and confiscated church property. Because of structural problems with the building, the museum was closed in 1796 until 1801. The collection was increased under Napoleon and the museum renamed Musée Napoléon, but after Napoleon’s abdication many works seized by his armies were returned to their original owners. The collection was further increased during the reigns of Louis XVIII and Charles X, and during the Second French Empire the museum gained 20,000 pieces. Holdings have grown steadily through donations and bequests since the Third Republic. The collection is divided among eight curatorial departments: Egyptian Antiquities; Near Eastern Antiquities; Greek, Etruscan and Roman Antiquities; Islamic Art; Sculpture; Decorative Arts; Paintings; Prints and Drawings.

 

法国国王对艺术品的收集始于弗朗索瓦一世时期,弗朗索瓦一世曾从意大利购买了包括油画蒙娜丽莎在内的大量艺术品。至路易十四时期,法国王室已经收集了约2000幅油画、150多座雕刻、700多张素描、以及其他大量美术作品。路易十五和路易十六时期继续从意大利、佛兰德斯和西班牙购入艺术作品。法国大革命期间的1793年8月10日,共和政府决定将收归国有的王室收藏集中于卢浮宫,并将其作为博物馆向公众开放,命名为“中央艺术博物馆”。11月8日,博物馆正式开放,展出了587件艺术品。此后共和政府又用从教堂、贵族和地方政府等处没收来的艺术品源源不断地补充博物馆收藏。

 

The Louvre has three entrances: the main entrance at the pyramid, an entrance from the Carrousel du Louvre underground shopping mall, and an entrance at the Porte des Lions (near the western end of the Denon wing). Under the main entrance to the museum is the Carrousel du Louvre, a shopping mall operated by Unibail-Rodamco. Among other stores, it has the first Apple Store in France, and a McDonald’s restaurant. The use of cameras and video recorders is permitted inside, but flash photography is forbidden.

 

拿破仑在征服欧洲各国的同时,将被征服国家的艺术品大量运往法国,送至卢浮宫(此时已改名为“拿破仑博物馆”)展出,还增加了古罗马和古埃及艺术品展厅。但随着1815年拿破仑的第二次退位和终生放逐,卢浮宫藏品中约有5000多件艺术品被归还给原来所属国。此后的100多年里,卢浮宫的收藏范围不断扩大,加入了东方(远东)、亚述、古埃及等时代的藏品。随着藏品数量的增多,展览空间越来越小。1981年,法国政府决定将卢浮宫建筑群的全部建筑划拨博物馆,并对卢浮宫实施了大规模的整修。由华裔美籍设计师贝聿铭设计的位于卢浮宫中央广场上的透明金字塔建筑。
