Treasures of the Louvre Museum with Marie Dessaillen
The Musee du Louvre in Paris holds some of the most important masterpieces of art history.
Led by historian and art historian Marie Dessaillen, a specialist of French 15th-18th-century history and European 15th-18th-century art history, this interactive discussion will present a bouquet of her favorite sculptures and paintings, from Greek art to the Italian Renaissance (Uccello, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Veronese) to the Dutch Golden Age (Vermeer) and French gallant, classical and romantic 18th-19th century paintings (Watteau, David, Gericault). We will delve into the history of the works, the techniques, the artists, and the patrons. We will look at all the little details that give us clues to understanding the layers of messages displayed in front of our very eyes and that we have all too often forgotten how to read.
When you next visit the Louvre, you will look at these beautiful paintings and statues with the eye of a connoisseur.
