For the first time since its creation in the wake of the French Revolution, the Musée du Louvre in Paris will be headed by a woman. Laurence des Cars, 54, the current president of the Musée d’Orsay and the Musée de l’Orangerie, was appointed on Wednesday as the new president-director of the Louvre by French President Emmanuel Macron. Des Cars will replace the museum’s leader of eight years, Jean-Luc Martinez, a trained archaeologist from a working-class background who became director in 2013 after a long reign by upper-class art historians.
