From 11 to 13 March 2007, the CODART TIEN Congress took place in Paris. On Monday 12 March, after a morning of lectures, the group of participants split up for a number of excursions to the collections of Musée du Louvre. A visit to the paintings collection was guided by curators Blaise Ducos and Cécile Scailliérez. Another group visited the decorative arts (in particular the Maximilian tapestries) with chief curator Marc Bascou. A third group went to see a selection of prints and drawings of the collection of the museum, guided by, among others, chief curator Carel van Tuyll van Serooskerken. It was during this excursion, which was held at the Consultation Room of the Department of Prints and Drawings, that this photo was taken.
