    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 ».

  • The Winged Victory of Samothrace, Louvre Museum MUST SEE

    Visiting the Louvre Museum in Paris can be overwhelming and provoke a kind of sensory and intellectual overload if you attempt to take in too much. Visitors end up feeling overwhelmed or claustrophobic. On a first visit to the Louvre, many, if not most, people make a beeline to the Mona Lisa. This is perfectly understandable, but make sure not to overlook some of the less well-publicized treasures housed at the museum. One work of art that inspires awe, without question, is the Winged Victory of Samothrace; a beautiful ten foot work of art from the Hellenistic period of Greek culture. The Winged Victory of Samothrace, considered the finest Hellenistic Greek sculpture, portrays the goddess of victory alighting on a ship’s prow, with her wings spread and her clinging garments rippling in th...

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.

This is perfectly understandable, but make sure not to overlook some of the less well-publicized treasures housed at the museum. One work of art that inspires awe, without question, is the Winged Victory of Samothrace; a beautiful ten foot work of art from the Hellenistic period of Greek culture. The Winged Victory of Samothrace, considered the finest Hellenistic Greek sculpture, portrays the goddess of victory alighting on a ship’s prow, with her wings spread and her clinging garments rippling in the wind. The broken sculpture was discovered on the Aegean island of Samothrace in 1863 and immediately sent to the Louvre Museum in Paris. It was discovered by Charles Champoiseau, French Vice-Consul to Adrianople (Turkey). The goddess of Victory (Nike, in Greek) is shown in the form of a winged woman standing on the prow of a ship, braced against the strong wind blowing through her garments. À Suivre

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.

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. .

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.
