The French President Has Named Museum Director Laurence des Cars as the First-Ever Woman to Lead the Louvre
The French president Emmanuel Macron has nominated Laurence des Cars, currently the president of the Musée d’Orsay, to helm the Louvre in a major shake-up at the world-famous Paris institution.

The decision marks the first time a woman has been named for the top job at the Louvre. Des Cars will head across the Seine river to replace its current president Jean-Luc Martinez, who was unsuccessful in his campaign for a third term.
