Louvre to send art to Japan's Fukushima
Paris’s world renowned Louvre art gallery announced on Friday it is to send numerous works of art to Japan in a gesture of solidarity with the country 10 months after it was devastated by an earthquake and tsunami.
AFP - France's Louvre museum plans to send more than 20 artworks to Japan, including Fukushima prefecture, near the stricken nuclear plant, in order to show solidarity with the disaster-hit country.
The exhibition will run from April 20 to September 17 in Japan's Iwate, Miyagi and Fukushima prefectures, said Jean-Luc Martinez, director of the department of Greek, Etruscan and Roman Antiquities at the Louvre.
