Exhibitions

Albrecht Altdorfer (before 1485–1538)
Now on  - Aug 3, 2020

Albrecht Altdorfer isn't quite as well known as some of his German Renaissance peers, like Albrecht Dürer, Lucas Cranach, and Hans Baldung Grien. That's set to change with the Louvre's exhibition dedicated to the inventive painter, draftsman, and printmaker.

Arranged in association with Vienna's Albertina Museum, "Albrecht Altdorfer (before 1485–1538)" seeks to shed light on Altdorfer's diverse body of work. Paintings, drawings, and prints are arranged chronologically and thematically, including characteristic depictions of landscapes and architecture, as well as works commissioned by the art-obsessed Emperor Maximilian.

Body and Soul – Sculpture in Italy from Donatello to Michelangelo
Now on  - Aug 17, 2020

Human emotion and expression were themes at the forefront of sculpture during the second half of the Quattrocento (15th century). Body and Soul ‒ Sculpture in Italy from Donatello to Michelangelo sheds light on the fascinating interpretation of the human form and psyche in Italy, during a period which paved the way for the arrival of art's golden boy, Michelangelo.

Exploring three major themes – Fury and Grace, Affect and Persuasiveness, and From Dionysos to Apollo – the exhibition celebrates a defining period in the history of Renaissance sculpture through its chiseled masterpieces, as well as contextual paintings, drawings, and prints.

Description

This e-ticket gets you smoothly into the Louvre, a grand old dame of art museums. The Louvre's collection ranges from Mesopotamian, Egyptian, and Greek antiquities to masterpieces by artists such as Da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Rembrandt. With 35,000 artworks it's a big (and worthwhile) commitment.

The Louvre's collection focuses on two important eras in art history; Art and Craftwork from ancient civilizations (especially those that laid the foundation for Western art) and Western European Art from the Middle Ages to 1848.

This famous museum began as a palace, bearing the personal art collections of French kings. Art first went on display here under the initiative of the royal academy in 1725 but it wasn't until 1793 - during the French Revolution - that it opened as a public art gallery (not a coincidence).

Before too long, the museum's already impressive collection was being bolstered by the spoils of Napoleon’s excursions around Europe.

He transformed the Louvre's art collection into the biggest in the world - though some of that ill-gotten booty has been returned, some of it remains to this day.
