A patronage in favour of the Musée du Louvre
Majid Boustany wished to associate the Francis Bacon MB Art Foundation with the Musée du Louvre by becoming a patron of this prestigious Parisian institution. In 2020 he created a dedicated fund within the Musée du Louvre Endowment Fund, directed towards the conservation and enhancement of the institution’s collections, thus enrolling his donation in an enduring project.
The income from this fund is destined to support the restoration of the museum artworks that Francis Bacon admired during his frequent visits. The Slaves by Michelangelo, as well as works by Raphaël, Titian, Tintoretto, Caravaggio, Rembrandt, Chardin, Goya, Ingres and Delacroix, housed in the museum, were major artistic references for Bacon and had a considerable influence on his working practice.
