The Louvre Abu Dhabi is set to display a surrealist oil painting by renowned Russian-French artist Marc Chagall, as well as works by Pablo Picasso.
Chagall’s painting, entitled “Between Darkness and Night,” was created between 1838 and 1943 and depicts two figures merging into each other.
It is one of the 27 artworks loaned by the Jean Nouvel-designed museum this week.
Other acquisitions and loans to be displayed in the Louvre Abu Dhabi’s galleries include two works by French Baroque painter Georges de La Tour, a selection of 25 Japanese prints from the 18th and 19th centuries, bronze sculptures by Auguste Rodin and a 14th-century topographic book from Persia, among others.
The museum has also secured 18 new loans from Paris’s Centre Pompidou.
