An Interactive ExperienceIn conjunction with the “Titian, Tintoretteo, Veronese: Rivals in Renaissance Venice” exhibition, the Department of Paintings hosts a temporary multimedia display focusing on the Madonna of the Rabbit by Titian (Richelieu wing, 2nd floor, room 17).
Developed for the Louvre - DNP Museum Lab project, this multimedia presentation provides the keys to understanding the work, using the artistic and iconographic analysis of Jean Habert, senior curator in the Department of Paintings. It offers visitors the opportunity to discover the work in detail by immersing themselves in its composition. It is an invitation to contemplate Titian’s masterpiece The Madonna of the Rabbit, which is situated in the center of the installation.
Born of the collaboration between the Musée du Louvre and Dai Nippon Printing (DNP), the Louvre - DNP Museum Lab (Tokyo, Japan) aims to explore new methods of looking at works of art, in particular by harnessing the benefits of multimedia technology. The project is further evidence of the Musée du Louvre’s desire to ensure that its activities are modern and up to date. Scientific content, choice of presentational approach and multimedia conception are developed by the Louvre in collaboration with DNP. The multimedia devices are created by the DNP teams in association with the Louvre, using DNP’s expertise and technological tools.
The Louvre - DNP Museum Lab project is an original, ground-breaking project that enables the Musée du Louvre to take full advantage of 21st-century technology in order to fulfill its mission of promoting understanding of art.
