DS Automobiles has been a patron of the Louvre since 2015 and is supporting the museum's "François I and Dutch Art" exhibition, which opens to the public today. This unique retrospective, a highlight of the museum's autumn programme, focuses on a part of French art history that has been forgotten. The exhibition is also a celebration of King François I, a great patron in his time, who supported the arts throughout his reign. It returns artists who are often unfairly sidelined to their rightful place. François I symbolises the influence of the French Renaissance, with his open, worldly attitude that attracted him simultaneously to the prestige of Italy and the innovations of Dutch artists. Remarkable artists, a bold king ahead of his time, the Louvre and its iconic Pyramid, all imbued with the avant-garde spirit that the DS Brand shares for this must-see exhibition open until 15 January 2018.
