The French Government have announced the nomination of Christophe Leribault to become the next Director of the Musée d'Orsay in Paris.

His career has been a rather interesting one it seems, beginning as Curator of Heritage at the Carnavalet Museum (Paris) where he was in charge of paintings and drawings for fifteen years. In 2006 he became a curator in the department of Graphic Arts in the Louvre. A year later he took over the management of the Musée national Eugène-Delacroix (Paris), until his 2012 appointment as director of the Petit Palais.

Leribault will begin his five-year term in early October.
