**ROMAN GLASS AT THE LOUVRE

The Louver

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 purpose of this post is to highlight the glass collections in The Louvre which covers from 2000BC to the present.  The focus will be their wonderful ancient Roman glass collection.
