The Advent of the Artist - Exhibition catalogue
For its fifth season, the Petite Galerie du Louvre, a space dedicated to artistic and cultural education, celebrates the "Figure d'artiste", echoing the museum's annual series of exhibitions devoted to Renaissance geniuses: Leonardo da Vinci, Donatello, Michelangelo and Altdorfer.
It was during the Renaissance that the artist asserted his independence and sought to leave the status of craftsman to claim a special place in the city. However, this invention of the "figure of the artist" has an older and more complex history that began in Antiquity and whose scope of the Louvre's collections makes it possible to measure it.
