The Château d’Ecouen housing the Musée de la Renaissance takes part in Museums Night on this Saturday July 3, 2021 and opens for free from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. A wonderful idea for history buffs who can make the most of the exhibition focusing on religious sculpture between Chartre and Paris circa 1540, called "Le Renouveau de la Passion" - The Renewal of Passion.

Museums Night offers the participating institutions the opportunity to give the public a new eye on their collections. Some of them offer narrative guided tours, some offer dances and others children activities...

For this new edition of Museums Night, the Musée national de la Renaissance (the national Renaissance museum) offers you guided tours of its collections. Most of them come from the Musée de Cluny storehouse - the Middle-Age museum set in Paris 5th arrondissement.

Among these masterpieces, the magnifience tapestry of David and Bathsheba, or even one of the very first copies of Leonardo da Vinci's The Last Supper ordered from 1506 in Milan to Marco d'Oggiono.

Another highlight being an introduction to the "Le Renouveau de la Passion, la sculpture religieuse entre Chartres et Paris autour de 1540" exhibition by the exhibition curator, Guillaume Fonkenell. This exhibition intends to show religious sculpture has experienced a major renewal in the 16th century and played a major part in the creation of a new artistic language circa 1540. To do so, the Musée de la Renaissance has enjoyed an exceptional loan from the Louvre: all five reliefs sculpted by Jean Goujon for Saint-Germain l'Auxerrois.

Three tours are scheduled at 6 p.m., 7:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. upon booking calling +33.(0)
