The Louvre part 1

Heir to the century of the Enlightenment and the French Revolution, the Louvre was quickly accepted as the “museum among museums;” and since then it has remained a model and a recognized authority. Founded in 1793 as a museum for all, it celebrates humanity’s long journey with the remarkable scope of a collection that spans thousands of years, reaches from America to the borders of India and China, and is highlighted by such iconic, universally admired works as the Mona Lisa, the Venus de Milo and the Victory of Samothrace.

The Louvre’s glass collections covers from 2000BC to the present.  The focus of this post will be to highlight their wonderful ancient Roman collection.  Click on pictures below to enlarge and use the X on the upper right hand of the page to return to the post.  A link to Paris and other museums in Northern France with glass collections
