Display case for Livre d'Heures of Francis I

Display case for Livre d'Heures of Francis I

Harmoge made for the Louvre Museum the permanent showcase in which is kept the precious "Livre d'Heures" belonging to Francis I of France.

In 2018, Harmoge created and installed for the Louvre Museum a security display case to house the extremely precious "Book of Hours" manuscript of François I of France, bound in gold, turquoise and rubies, and adorned with cornaline plaques on a gold background.
The work of art is in the Département des Objets d'Art du Moyen Âge, de la Renaissance et des Temps Modernes.
The "Book of Francis I" is a key book of the Renaissance. Its preciousness lies in its materials but also in its rarity.
