The Louvre Makes 482,000 Works of Art Available Online #ArtTuesday
If you need another reason to stay inside as we try to fend of the lingering pandemic, here it is. The Louve is making almost 500,000 works of art available online. Here’s more from MOTHERBOARD:
The Louvre is “dusting off its treasures, even the least-known,” Jean-Luc Martinez, President-Director of the Musée du Louvre, said in a press release. The entire Louvre collection is available to view online, including pieces on display currently, as well as ones that are on loan or in storage. Virtual visitors can now navigate the museum room-by-room using an interactive floor plan.
The collection includes 482,000 works from the Louvre, as well as from the Musée National Eugène-Delacroix, sculptures from the Tuileries and Carrousel gardens, and from the National Museums Recovery—pieces that were recovered after WWII and entrusted to the Louvre until they can be returned to their owners.
