Visiting Musée Du Louvre... Part II

After viewing the Mona Lisa, we continued on our tour of the Louvre...



Jupiter foudroyant les Vices by Paul Véronèse...


Les Pèlerins d'Emmaüs by Paul Véronèse...


Diana, the goddess of moon, hunting and childbirth...


Virgin and Child with Saint John the Baptist and Saint Sebastian by Giovanni Antonio Boltraffio...


Venus and Cupid with a Satyr by Antonio Allegri...


The fight of David and Goliath depicted by Daniele Ricciarelli...


It's an amazing two-way portrait...


Les Mystères de la Passion du Christ by Antonio Campi is meticulous representation of specific episodes of the passion, resurrection and ascension of Christ. This painting is regarded as a bit controversial as it shows a UFO hovering above...


Antonio Carracci's Le Deluge - the Flood...


A view outside...






The Trojan Emperor...






Festa in Teatro a Roma by Giovanni Paolo Panini


The Louvre is huge and visitors need to take breaks to rest. In fact the Louvre is one of the biggest museums in the world in terms of size and collections...



John Martin's Pandemonium, from 1841...


Francis Danby's Le Christ marchant sur les eaux, a depiction of Christ walking on water...


Battle of Romans and Sabines by Giovanni Francesco Barbieri...


The Louvre staircase...


Giulio Romano dit Jules Romain by Barthélemy Blaise...


Napoleon Bonaparte in the Alps, by Paul Delaroche...


And then we realised we were woefully short on time...


...rushing through!


The Death of Sardanapal by Eugene Delacroix...


A must-see painting in the Louvre, Le Radeau de la Méduse or The Raft of the Medusa...


 Le Radeau de la Méduse depicts a moment from the aftermath of the wreck of the French naval frigate Méduse, which sank off the coast of today's Mauritania 1816. 147 people escaped on a hurriedly constructed raft. All but 15 died in the 13 days before their rescue, and those who survived endured starvation and dehydration and had practiced cannibalism...



Liberty Leading the People by Eugene Delacroix...


The Intervention of the Sabine Women by Jacques-Louis David, showing a legendary episode following the abduction of the Sabine women by the founding generation of Rome. This was Jacques-Louis' tribute to his wife to honour his wife, with the theme being love prevailing over conflict...



A view of the outside...



And now, we need to rush to the section on sculptures...

That's great effort in covering the Louvre with descriptive tags, Rajeev. Thanks for the virtual tour :)
