The Louvre part 2


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 main focus of this post will be the wonderful and beautiful collection of Venetian and Facon de Venise glasses. Most of the glasses shown are from France and Spain. Click on pictures to enlarge and use X on the upper right hand corner of the page to return to this post.
