  • Visit the Louvre Museum

    Vidéo en français : http://youtu.be/7wXwwGXUMgE How well do you really know the most famous museum in the world? In the heart of the former home of the King's of France, stands the famous glass pyramids of Pei (extremely controversial in 1988). A few feet away, the artist Anselm Kiefer is installed in the northern staircase of la Cour carrée, for contemporary art also has a place inside the museum. A full program of temporary exhibitions, film projections and concerts makes the Louvre a fascinating place to be. Thus, the Louvre is « a secular institution resolutely focused on the future ».

  • A modern classic: The Pyramids of the Louvre

    Who dares mess with a classic? How can you modernize the very symbol of historicity? For the Louvre Museum in Paris, is not just the repository of some of the world's most valued treasures - it is *itself* one of the world's treasures. *Who would dare botox Audrey Hepburn?* The French did. There were practical reasons, as usual. Too many people want to visit the Louvre in the era of global super-museums increasingly catering to mass culture (can you guess how many people crave a selfie in front of the Mona Lisa? Millions? Billions?) So the Louvre had to expand. Building a tower like the MOMA in Manhattan was out of the question. The only way to go was underground. But how do you bring natural light underground? Voila! *The Pyramids*. A daring and controversial intervention to ...

  • Musee du Louvre - the best online tour

    Located in the center of Paris, the Louvre was originally built as a fortress in the late 12th century under Philip II (its stone block foundations are visible today in the basement of the museum). It was later converted into the official residential palace, undergoing many changes over the years until Louis XIV decided to move to Versailles in 1682. During the French Revolution, the National Assembly decreed that the Louvre should be used as a museum to display the nation's masterpieces. The museum opened its doors to the public on August 1793 with an exhibition of 537 paintings and the rest is, more or less, history. In the 1980's, it was with some controversy that the glass pyramid design by Chinese American architect I.M. Pei was greeted by the French public. However, the forward thin...

The remains of this fortress can actually still be seen in the Louvre crypt. During the 14th century, Charles V converted the fortress into a royal residence and later in 1546, Francis I had the whole site renovated into the French Renaissance style Louvre one can see today. Francis I is by many seen as the founder of the modern Louvre, as he not only renovated the site, but also acquired the Louvre's center piece; the Mona Lisa."

I started posting outfit of the day (#OOTD) photos on Instagram about two years ago when I was living in Dallas, Texas for work. I loved taking photos and posting on Instagram so much that I decided to expand and try out YouTube and blogging as well. When I was living in the city, my personal style was a bit more streetwear 90's grunge, but now that I live in Southern California and closer to the ocean, my style has become a lot more cozy and comfortable with a lot of bohemian influences. If I had to describe my fashion sense on my blog, Instagram aesthetic, and YouTube editing style now, I'd probably describe it as modern bohemian with an edge, since I tend to wear and do things that might be considered unconventional to others. I'm not sure if that is true, but since I've moved back to California, I just find that I gravitate to what is easiest and effortless for me while living near the beach where it always feels like summer. Thank you so much for stopping by my YouTube channel and I hope that you enjoy what you'll find here! I love fashion, beauty (especially hair styling and bohemian braids), DIY projects and how to videos, making travel diaries of all the places that I'm lucky enough to visit, and sharing my (for lack of a better term) "modern bohemian" lifestyle.

It was the first time that collections formerly owned by aristocrats and the church were made accessible to a broad and wide public, and it was the first time that an international public could visit the Louvre. The Louvre immediately became a kind of magnet for tourism; and cultural tourism, one could argue, actually began with the founding of the Louvre, because people wanted to go and see for the first time, in an easy and well-arranged fashion, the collections that were formed—by French monarchs, by the church, and by other entities in France, that were brought together following the cataclysmic Revolution of 1789—to be the first public art museum in the world. To talk about the Louvre as a museum is really to talk about the development of a gigantic and difficult complex of palaces and administrative buildings that was built throughout many centuries. The complex of buildings itself is so complicated to understand that the Louvre has installed today an entire exhibition devoted to the history of the building. Those of you who are interested in history, I really urge you to go to those galleries first. They're directly in front of you; they're where the temporary exhibitions are in the Louvre, as you go down through I. M. Pei's great pyramid, and you enter the Louvre and you buy your tickets. You just go straight on, and you go in the Pavilion Sully, and you see an extraordinary exhibition in which models of the building as it grows, representations of the buildings, fragments of the buildings as it grows. And then you can go even further into the building, underground, and actually witness the growth of the Louvre as a complex. The first great work of art that one sees, that acts as the symbol of the whole complex, is the Victory of Samothrace, the so-called Winged Victory of Samothrace. Samothrace is a Greek island, and on this island in 1863—the same year as the famous Salon des Refusé that made modern art and that introduced Manet and the future Impressionists to the world occurred in Paris—this work of art was found, brought by a French archaeological team, brought to the Louvre, set up on this great entrance staircase to the Louvre. You see it from a long distance as you come in and you approach it, and you ascend a series of staircases, and you look up to this extraordinary Hellenistic Greek sculpture, the drapery flowing, the wings unfurled and pushing forward. There's the sense of optimism, and victory, and clarity, and sort-of stridency of purpose that one sees, and of the greatness of the human past. The whole idea of an art museum is that we're to be moved by the works of the humans that have preceded us in human history, and we're to see their works as the level against which we measure ourselves today with our society. One looks at this incredible winged victory, thinking of the imagination, the technical skill, and the brilliance of the artist who conceived of it. It was on the prow of a great stone ship. As you can see, it had a head and two arms, but I think most people agree that it's a little bit better off without them because you supply them in your mind, and you're sort-of trying to figure out what were her arms doing? Were they pointing to the future? Were they close to her body? Where were they? What did her head look like? Did she have streaming hair? The fact that you, as a viewer, have to supply these missing elements, gives the work of art a kind of mystery and a fascination that endures in your mind. I will sort of pepper this lecture with little bits of advice. One of my little bits of advice is that it's very important to study a work of art and be open to it, and to be open to it in such a way that it works in your mind after you've left it. The most important aspect of a work of art is its memory; it's what you take away when you leave it, how it imprints itself on your mind and how your mind is affected by it. What I've done for you in the next 11 lectures is to concentrate only on paintings in the Louvre, only on the works of art in the Piano Nobile. I've arranged 11 lectures, the first five of which are devoted to foreign artists in the Louvre—artists from Italy, and Flanders, and Holland, and Germany, and Spain. Then, the last six lectures are devoted to the incredible tradition of painting in France. It was because of the royal collections and because of their accessibility to artists, just as I've said before, that painting in France became so great so quickly in the late 16th and throughout the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries, when we'll survey those things.

Join my PAGE on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/DiCAPUA.Channel Join my GROUP too: https://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/DiCapua.Channel/ I. M. Pei - (1989) - Grand LOUVRE - Paris, France Phase 1 - completed 1989 For eight centuries the Louvre has stood as a unique national monument, central to the people and spirit of France. In 1983, President François Mitterrand requested that it be modernized, expanded and better integrated with the city — all without compromising the integrity of the historic building. The challenge was magnified by the fact that the Louvre was originally constructed, and used for most of its life, as a royal palace; it was fundamentally ill-suited to serve as a museum. The two-phase solution involved the reorganization of the long linear building into a compact U-shaped museum around a focal courtyard. A centrally located glass pyramid forms the new main entrance and provides direct access to galleries in each of the museum's three wings. Critically, the pyramid also serves as a skylight for a very large expansion building constructed under the courtyard to provide all the public amenities and technical support required in a modern museum. Corollary objectives for improved urban integration led to the transformation of surface parking into a three-hectare fountain plaza. Closed passages through the building were opened as public rights of way, underground services and parking relieved congestion, and a 55,000m2 mixed-use complex, supplementary but independent of the museum, was designed to help finance the project and reinvigorate the heart of Paris. The half-mile-long Louvre, previously an obstacle to circulation, thus became a vital gathering place and bridge to the surrounding city. Phase 2 - Completed 1993 Conversion of the Richelieu Wing from offices of the Ministry of Finance into exhibition space constitutes the critical second stage of the Grand Louvre. Only by incorporating this nineteenth-century wing could the project goals be fully realized. Unlike Phase I, which involved the construction of a new underground building, Phase II required the creation of new space within an historic shell. Work included the cleaning and restoration of façades and exterior sculpture, conversion of three interior courtyards (previously staff parking lots) into skylit sculpture courts, and demolition of 12 acres of dingy government offices compressed into 6+ floors. With the exception of several historic rooms, the interior was totally rebuilt to accord with the three-level palace exterior. Sculpture was installed on the bottom level for maximum support, Decorative Arts in the middle, and at the top, painting galleries with innovative skylights designed for optimal viewing of the collection. A grand escalator court facilitates access to all levels, merging old and new and better equipping the Louvre for its preeminent role as a modern museum. Beyond conversion of the Richelieu Wing, Phase II included the underground mixed-use complex known as the Carrousel du Louvre, the Pyramide Inversée that brings light into its center, the connected underground parking garage, and a series of related surface projects designed to actively reclaim the Louvre as a vital pedestrian precinct in the heart of Paris. .

Located in the center of Paris, the Louvre was originally built as a fortress in the late 12th century under Philip II (its stone block foundations are visible today in the basement of the museum). It was later converted into the official residential palace, undergoing many changes over the years until Louis XIV decided to move to Versailles in 1682. During the French Revolution, the National Assembly decreed that the Louvre should be used as a museum to display the nation's masterpieces. The museum opened its doors to the public on August 1793 with an exhibition of 537 paintings and the rest is, more or less, history. In the 1980's, it was with some controversy that the glass pyramid design by Chinese American architect I.M. Pei was greeted by the French public. However, the forward thinking of President Francois Mitterrand with his Grands Projects prevailed, and in 1989 a new architectural icon was born. One of the world's 2 or 3 greatest museums, and at a head count of 9.7 million in 2012 THE most visited, the Louvre holds 35,000 artworks displayed over an area of 652,300 square feet (so forgive me if I've left out an item or two). This footage having been shot several years ago, some of the artworks may have since been moved: the rooms may have changed, but the suspects remain the same. ;-) More recent music by the superb Florian Fricke and the wondrous Michael Stearns and the rest from various classical sources.

For more info on Louvre, visit: http://www.worldsiteguides.com/europe/france/paris/louvre/ "..The known history of the Louvre started as early as year 1190, when king Filip II built a fortress on the site to protect Paris from Viking raiders. The remains of this fortress can actually still be seen in the Louvre crypt. During the 14th century, Charles V converted the fortress into a royal residence and later in 1546, Francis I had the whole site renovated into the French Renaissance style Louvre one can see today. Francis I is by many seen as the founder of the modern Louvre, as he not only renovated the site, but also acquired the Louvre's center piece; the Mona Lisa."

http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLM4S2hGZDSE4efVB44MEkvhTr5ylHJqJI Paris-based writer Andrew Hussey travels through the glorious art and surprising history of an extraordinary French institution to show that the story of the Louvre is the story of France. As well as exploring the masterpieces of painters such as Veronese, Rubens, David, Chardin, Gericault and Delacroix, he examines the changing face of the Louvre itself through its architecture and design. Medieval fortress, Renaissance palace, luxurious home to kings, emperors and more recently civil servants, today it attracts eight million visitors a year. The documentary also reflects the very latest transformation of the Louvre - the museum's recently-opened Islamic Gallery.
