Samuel F. B. Morse's Gallery of the Louvre and the Art of Invention

Special Exhibition Tour

Gather in the exhibition space to experience a guided interactive tour of Samuel F. B. Morse’s iconic painting Gallery of the Louvre (1831–1833) along with a selection of works from the museum’s own collection that, like Morse’s painting, feature museum and gallery spaces as their subject matter. Though Morse is most widely known as a scientist and inventor, he was a leading artist of his time. Filled with his careful and personal selection of the Louvre’s finest works, all of which he painstakingly reproduced in miniature, the painting is a signal work of transatlantic exchange intended to connect American audiences with great European artworks.
