  • [01] France donates Louvre etchings inspired by Alexander the Great to Dion Museum

    (ANA-MPA) -- Two etchings by French artist Sebastien Leclerc (1637-1714), displayed at the Louvre Museum, will be delivered to Archaeological Museum of Dion, in northern Greece, by French consul general to Thessaloniki Christian Thimonier.

    The items were donated by French authorities.

    Both works, inspired by Alexander the Great, were created for Louis XIV and have already been on display at Dion during the "Louvre at Dion" exhibition, held within the framework of the annual Olympus Festival last summer.

    The works, entitled "Entry of Alexander the Great into Babylon" (1704), and "Academy of Sciences and Fine Arts" (1698), will be delivered to the Archaeological Museum of Dion on Monday.

    The site, near the border of the Macedonia and Thessaly provinces, owes its name to the important ancient sanctuary dedicated to mythical Zeus. (ANA-MPA)
