The Horses of the Louvre

Director(s): Jean-Luc Gunst

Throughout art history, artists have endeavored to capture the complicity between man and horse. From the first scenes of Mesopotamian horse training in the third millennium BC to the Romantic fervor of the 19th century, some sixty equestrian works attest to the age-old bond between humans and horses—a bond demonstrated by two Akhal-Teke stallions, trained by the famous master horseman Alexis Grüss, in the Cour Carrée of the Louvre.
