9 Sept 2005 - 2 Jan 2006. Frans Post (1612-1680), from Brazil to the Court of Louis XIV. This is the "Year of Brazil in France", and the Louvre is participating too. In association with the National Library of Brazil, the museum presents an exhibition of Frans Post's paintings. Post was Dutch, but he travelled through the north east of Brazil between 1637 and 1644 and painted the first images of the New World depicted by a European. Deeply moved by his trip, he continued to paint South American landscapes for the rest of his life. Another aspect of the Louvres Brazilian theme starts on 28 September: a display of an 11-metre-high sculpture by Tunga, a leading contemporary Brazilian artist, inside the museum's famous glass pyramid.

Admission to the museum costs 6. Wed-Mon 09.00-17.30 (Wed, Fri until 21.30)
