For the 30th anniversary of the Pyramid, the Louvre Museum invited the artist Jean-Michel Othoniel who proposed an original creation inspired by a detail of a painting by Rubens, declined in six paintings and a book.

To create these paintings, the artist was inspired by the rose painted by Rubens in The Marriage of Marie de Medici and Henri IV (1621-1625).

For Jean-Michel Othoniel, this rose is the emblematic flower of the museum. Queen among flowers, triumphant, symbol of power and passion, this rose painted with great freedom speaks to us of the destiny of a woman, of her beauty, of her love stronger than death, of the history of France, of the history of the museum. With this installation, Jean-Michel Othoniel invites visitors on a dreamlike walk combining sculptures, a wonderful herbarium, paintings and a garden.
