What is Cour Marly?

The Marly Court is a hall of the Louvre Museum in the Richelieu Wing that has a glass roof and natural light flooded the entire hall. The courtyard is home to many large marble and bronze statues.

These statues were created to decorate the gardens of a palace in the countryside, Château de Marly, where Louis XIV invited his friends.

Marly Horses

The hall’s name is taken from the Marly Horses statues (statues carved in Carrara marble by Guillaume Coustou, depicting horses and riders).
