Cy Twombly designed an Aegean sea-colored ceiling mural in the Salle des Bronzes at the Paris museum, which is undergoing various renovations while closed to the public – renovations including repainting the Salle des Bronzes’ walls. “A debate about the suitability of the new wall color — precisely ‘Marron Côte d’Azur,’ a reddish and black shade — has been circulating in the French press in recent weeks. On Friday, Twombly Foundation lawyers filed a lawsuit in a Paris court, demanding to reverse the Louvre’s renovation — part of a makeover project in what were once royal chambers — and restore the Salle des Bronzes’s neutral walls.” – The New York Times
