It is the first in-depth video exploration of Chinese and Western art, exposing both the differences between the two cultures as well as the similarities they share.
It is the first time that the Louvre had opened so much to a Chinese shooting crew, and also the first occasion such a bastion of European art has been so closely depicted by Chinese directors and contemporary artists.
In each episode there´s a particular interpretation by a famous contemporary Chinese artist, such as Xu Bing, Sui Jianguo, Yan Pei-Ming and Fan Zeng.
The Louvre Museum in Paris, France, is one of the largest and most famous museums in the world. Part of the royal Palace of the Louvre was first opened to the public as a museum on November 8, 1793, during the French Revolution.
