“Thanks to this redesign, we hope to reach even more visitors, and provide them the keys to understanding the wonderful artistic heritage with which we have been entrusted,” said Jean Luc-Martinez, president of the Musee du Louvre.It is not the first time that Alwaleed Philanthropies, which was founded by Saudi royal Al Waleed bin Talal, has donated to the museum. In 2005, the non-profit organisation provided $23 million (Dh84.4 million) to help build its Department of Islamic Art.
