San Francisco and Paris: Museum Agreement

An international accord was recently reached between Paris’ Musée du Louvre and San Francisco’s Fine Arts Museums on a series of exhibitions and exchanges.  In it, works of art from both collections will be shared so that Paris will get to see what’s being exhibited in San Francisco and vice versa, over the next five years. 

The agreement was signed before the Royal Treasures from the Louvre: Louis XIV to Marie-Antoinette at the Legion of Honor opened.  This is indicative of the exclusive affiliation that has been created between the two museums.  It is hoped that it will further expand into unification on art conservation projects, publications and public education programs. The two museums will also come together to recognize works of art that will be access for loans from their collections.

According to the Deputy Director of San Francisco’s Fine Arts Museums, Richard Benefield, “it is incredibly exciting to be involved in bringing to the public, both in Paris and San Francisco, great works from our two illustrious institutions. [It] will not only bring forth new scholarship through the collaboration of our colleagues, but it will also give our visitors the opportunity to see great works of art from both museums in ways that would otherwise not be possible.’’

The agreement is also indicative of how both institutions are seeking to widen their outreach around the world.  A committee will be established with representatives from both museums which will convene annually to figure out what exhibitions, pieces from their collections, or educational programming will be exchanged.
