The Lou­vre hosted a gala din­ner for more than 500 gov­ern­ment rep­re­sen­ta­tives, busi­ness lead­ers and VIPS at the Wynn Palace Co­tai, Ma­cau, ahead of the open­ing this month of a ma­jor ex­hi­bi­tion at the National Mu­seum of China in Bei­jing, In­ven­tion of the Lou­vre: Eight Cen­turies of French His­tory Through the Mu­seum’s Col­lec­tions. The ex­hi­bi­tion— which fea­tures more than 130 paint­ings, sculp­tures, prints and arte­facts record­ing key mo­ments in the his­tory of the mu­seum and its premises’ pre­vi­ous in­car­na­tion as a royal palace—will move to Hong Kong’s Her­itage Mu­seum in April as part of Le French May and 20th an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions of the Hong Kong SAR. The sump­tu­ous menu was cre­ated by Miche­lin-starred chef Guy Martin. François Curiel, chair­man of Christie’s Asia-pa­cific, presided over an auc­tion of fine wines, art and lux­ury ac­ces­sories.
