Some time ago the governments of France and The United Arab Emirates, reached a cultural agreement. France and French museums would help build and stock a new museum called The Louvre Abu Dhabi in Abu Dhabi. From May 2-July 28, 2014, the Paris Louvre will be exhibiting 150 of the finest masterpieces which are destined to fill the halls at the Louvre Abu Dhabi, which will start out in life with a collection of 600 works. On display will be ancient jewellry, paintings by Jordaens, Manet and Magritte, a previously unseen papier colle by Picasso and nine paintings by the recently deceased American artist Cy Twombly. The new museum will open in December 2015.
