This week’s lecture was a film about the restoration of the Apollo Gallery (or Galerie d’Apollon)  in the Louvre – designed by Charles LeBrun for Louis the XIV, and finished in the 19th century with Delacroix‘s ceiling painting The Triumph of Apollo (below).

The Apollo Gallery will be the subject of several following lectures – including the decorative painting and sculpture, the tapestries, and a look at this gallery in relation to the history of ceiling painting.  The second half of the film will be shown next week.
