Some of the Louvre Masterpieces we will see
The highlights of the Louvre collection include many of the greatest artworks in the history of the world.
The collection has pieces representing artists from around the globe and from several millennia. If you are interested in art, there is plenty to inspire awe in you at the Louvre.
Below, we’ve gathered a handful of the stunning artwork you’ll see on your private tour with Pascal.
Sculpture : Venus de Milo
This statue comes to us from ancient Greece, and it is recognized as perhaps that culture’s greatest surviving work of art. Standing before it and seeing firsthand how alive the goddess appears, it is easy to see why this has made such a lasting impact.
The sculpture was discovered back in 1820 by a farmer. His unlikely discovery led to major headlines as this masterpiece of antiquity was unearthed. Presented prominently at the Louvre since then, art lovers for generations have passed under the work’s heavenly gaze, gradually increasing its popularity among artists and critics alike.
Today, it is understood as a high point in Classical sculpture. The subtlety and grace, as well as impeccable realism, make it as astonishing today as it must have been more than two thousand years ago when it was first unveiled.
Paintings : Mona Lisa
Among paintings, Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa certainly stands as the most famous. Her cryptic smile and mysterious gaze captivate huge crowds that form daily around this work of art at the Louvre.
It is among the final paintings Leonardo worked on, representing the height of skill from the Italian Renaissance’s ultimate master. He obsessively reworked the image for years, never quite finishing it.
Over the course of the 20th century, the painting went from a fairly famous painting to the most well-known image in the world, thanks in part to its theft from the Louvre in 1911 — a massive art heist that eventually ended in the painting’s return to the museum.
Coronation of Napoleon
Jacques-Louis David is maybe the most French of all artists. He lived and worked during the most tumultuous years in the country’s history, and he painted many of these moments as they happened! His Coronation of Napoleon is a perfect example.
The massive work shows the moment that Napoleon placed the crown on his own head — proclaiming himself Emperor of France. It is a moment of incredible importance in the country's history, and it is rendered in all the drama and pomp one could ever dream of in this painting by David.
This painting cannot be understood without seeing it in person. It towers over the viewer at over 6 meters (more than 20 feet), and every inch is filled with delicious detail.
The Louvre simply has too many masterful works of art to see and enjoy without a private tour. That’s why you need to make sure you schedule your own personal experience of this art museum with Pascal.
We eliminate all the headaches — securing your tickets and taking you past the long lines. And Pascal gives you insightful and entertaining information that brings the ultimate art collection to life.
It’s an incredible opportunity to see the Louvre, and it all starts by reaching out today!
