The Louvre Museum in Paris has made its way to Hong Kong, making it convenient for more people to see the world’s finest art.

Pascal Torres, chief curator of the Department of Interpretation and Cultural Programming, spoke about why it’s important to showcase art from The Louvre celebrated collections in Hong Kong, “The most important visitors from foreign countries are Chinese. Chinese visitors are coming from China, from Taiwan, also from Hong Kong. So it was necessary for us to permit some of the Chinese public, who will not travel very easily to France or to Paris, to know a little about the Louvre Museum. That’s why we decided to show this kind of exhibition which is a manner of introduction to a proper visit to The Louvre, for those who will go to Paris or for those who will never go perhaps to Paris.”

One hundred thirty works representing the various types of displays will be on exhibit until July 24.
