Iranian, French experts to negotiate cultural heritage ties

Teams of Iranian and French experts are to negotiate ways to expand cultural heritage ties in an online seminar.

Teams of Iranian and French experts are to negotiate ways to expand cultural heritage ties in a webinar.

The webinar, which is due for March 18, will be organized by Franco-Iranian Center in close collaboration with the Louvre Museum.

Iranian experts Ruhollah Shirazi and Arezou Rasouli as well as the Director of Islamic Arts at the Louvre Yannick Lintz, Director of Louvre Oriental Antiquities Department Ariane Thomas, and several French scholars and archeologists including Rocco Rante, Julien Cuni, Jean-Claude Voisin, and Sebastien Gondet will be giving speeches during the session.

In 2018, the Louvre Museum lent art to Tehran for an unprecedented show, which was held at the National Museum of Iran, exhibiting some 50 works including 2,400-year-old Egyptian sphinx, a bust of Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius and drawings by Rembrandt and Delacroix, and other artifacts linked to Greek, Egyptian and Mesopotamian culture, as well as objects from ancient Iran.

In parallel with the Tehran exhibition from March to July of the same year, the Louvre-Lens Museum also presented a vast collection of objects dating back to the Qajar era (1785-1925).
