Photographer's Note

Another picture from Abu Dhabi Louvre.

Som very big sums of money (from Wikipedia): The museum is part of a thirty-year agreement between the city of Abu Dhabi and the French government. The museum is located on the Saadiyat Island Cultural District. It is approximately 24,000 square metres in size, with 8,000 square metres of galleries, making it the largest art museum in the Arabian peninsula. The final cost of the construction is about 600 million. In addition, US$525 million was paid by Abu Dhabi to be associated with the Louvre name, and an additional US$747 million will be paid in exchange for art loans, special exhibitions and management advice.

Artworks from around the world are showcased at the museum, with particular focus placed upon bridging the gap between Eastern and Western art.
