Under its new director, the Louvre is about to undergo its most ambitious facelift since the unveiling of the iconic pyramid in 1993. This September, work is due to start on the space below the pyramid entrance. The permanent collection will also be entirely rehung, the information labels to be updated and replaced, and a new exhibition space dedicated to the Louvre’s history is in the works.
