The Mona Lisa
The most famous painting of the world, there is more to this painting than meets the eye. With your guide, you’ll understand why this deceptively simple painting is surrounded by armed guards and bulletproof glass at all hours of the day. It’s a secret that only an expert can unravel.
The Winged Victory of Samothrace
Noted for its graceful wings extending from its elegantly formed torso, this statue was discovered in Samothrace, Greece but is now preserved in the Louvre’s collection. Her head is missing though, and no one is entirely sure why or what happened to it. With your guide, you’ll explore the fascinating history behind this enduring piece of sculpture.
Liberty Leading the People
A symbol of French unity and patriotism, Eugène Delacroix’s masterpiece vividly depicts the French people rising against their oppressors in the French Revolution. It’s a powerful work of art, and a reminder of the power of the people. With your guide, you’ll understand why this painting has become an enduring symbol of the French people, and visited by thousands every year.
Venus de Milo
One of the most famous statues in the world, the Venus de Milo is also one of the most mysterious. There is much debate surrounding who crafted this fine example of Greek statuary, but the leading contender is Alexandros of Antioch. It depicts the ancient Greek god of Beauty Aphrodite and is named after the island it was discovered on: Milos. It’s an excellent example of the mastery of human form developed by Greek sculptors, and later revived by Italians during the Renaissance.
