The newly opened ( 2 weeks ago ) Louvre is a must-to-do if in Abu Dhabi. I brought my niece who’s 15 and she really enjoyed it.
the Louvre has 12 galleries, it’s a journey from prehistoric to contemporary art.
Among the Top ten masterpieces to look out for are:
Leonardo da Vinci – La Belle Ferronnière 1490, Vincent Van Gogh Self -portrait 1887, Portrait of Fayoum Egypt Antinoopolis 225-250 A.D., Jacques -Louis David Napoleon crossing the Alps 1803, Claude Monet La gare Saint -Lazare 1877, Bactrian Princess central Asia end of 3rd beginning of 2nd millenium BCE, Jackson Pollock number 26A Black and White 1947,
then you’ll find Miro’, Hopper, Caravaggio, Vermeer, etc etc etc
I must confess that it was the building in itself that caught my attention. Love the architecture. It’s amazing what they can do…..
