Legendary pharaoh Senusret III

The first exhibition in the world dedicated to this king of Egypt.
In special collaboration with the musée du Louvre.

The Pharaoh Senusret III was one of the most emblematic monarchs in Ancient Egypt. At the peak of the Middle Kingtom, his reign marked a turning-point in the history of Ancient Egypt. This strategist and visionary sovereign conquered Nubia where he had a network of fortresses built; set the first boundaries of his kingdom and established trade and strong diplomatic relations with his eastern neighbours.
The public will discover the artistic riches of a key reign, considered to be a golden age of Ancient Egypt.
The exhibition includes approximately 300 works, including 200 loans from the major museums (Louvre, British Museum, Metropolitan Museum, Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Berlin Egyptian Museum, National Museum of Khartoum and National Museum of Beirut) and around 100 objects from the Egyptology collection of excavated works belonging to the University of Lille III, usually conserved at the Palais des Beaux-Arts.
