Louvre Abu Dhabi Brings its Collection Online, Offering Rich Digital Content and Stories of Cultural Connections

Louvre Abu Dhabi is offering digital access to the masterpieces in its growing world-class collection. Audiences can now browse a selection of 120 artworks on the museum’s website in the first phase of this initiative, providing audiences unprecedented access to artworks spanning centuries of cultures and civilisations.

In line with Louvre Abu Dhabi’s multilingual offerings, the museum’s online collection is available in three languages – English, Arabic and French. Viewers will be able to dive deeper into the museum’s stories of cultural connections through artwork details, descriptions, histories and up-close visuals of each artwork. Visitors who want to anticipate or to complete their real-life museum experience, art enthusiasts, students and experts will now have access to high-resolution images, including details that are sometimes challenging to see on display, as well as works which are not currently exhibited.

Louvre Abu Dhabi’s collection of exceptional treasures serve as a chrono-thematic journey of human creativity from Neolithic times to the present day. The collection includes ancient archaeological finds, decorative arts, neoclassical sculptures, paintings by modern masters and contemporary installations. As visitors explore the collection, they encounter artworks from different centuries and civilisations exhibited side-by-side, allowing audiences to discover connections between various cultures.

Highlights of the first 120 artworks available online include:

  • Plank Idol with Two heads from Cyprus, dating to ca. 2300 – 1900 BCE
  • A statuette of Woman Dressed in a Woollen Garment, which belongs to the Oxus civilisation that spread in Central Asia in the late 3rd and early 2nd millennium BCE

  • Monumental Lion from Spain or Southern Italy, dating to ca. 1000 – 1200
  • Medallion Carpet, a luxury article from Ushak, Turkey, from ca. 1480
  • Pavement and Octagonal Fountain that were originally part of the inner courtyard or, more probably, the main hall of an 18th-century residence in Damascus, Syria
  • Virgin and Child (Venice, Italy, 1480 – 1485), an oil painting by Giovanni Bellini representative of the early Venetian Renaissance
  • The Bohemian (Paris, France, 1862 – 1867), a painting by Edouard Manet portraying a young gypsy
  • Panel with Lotus Flowers and Leaves in the Saz Style (Iznik, Turkey, ca. 1575 – 1580)
  • Composition with Blue, Red, Yellow and Black (France, Paris, 1922) by Piet Mondrian

  • Propagation (France, 2016) by Giuseppe Penone showing the thumbprint of the Late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, founder of the federation of the United Arab Emirates.
