The Louvre Murder Club investigates and interprets a choice of some thirty artworks by applying the principles of criminology and art history for a unique "criminartistic" analysis. All come from very different styles and periods. But all from ancient Greek amphorae to nineteenth-century French paintings, from canvases by Rubens to those by Delacroix, David or Ingres have one thing in common : they depict mythological or historical murders, their protagonists and their stories.
Each work will be treated as a crime scene and will lead to a fascinating investigation inspired by the principles of legal and forensic teams. Into what category does the murder fall ? What are the factual and historical issues ? Who are the victims ? What portrait can be drawn of the guilty ? What is their profile, their background, their motive ? Bringing the truth to light will depend on the unexpected answers given to these questions.
