About this course:

As the world's largest art museum, there are thousands of highlights among the approximately 38,000 objects located in the Louvre. Each of those works, as well as the structure itself, has its own unique history. For instance, most people are aware that the Mona Lisa is located in the Louvre, but fewer are aware as to how a masterpiece of the Italian Renaissance master Leonardo da Vinci came to be in Paris, France. In this course, we look at some of the more remarkable works in the most visited museum in the world and discover how they came to be there. Some, such as the Oath of the Horatii and the Raft of the Medusa, have almost always been in the Louvre. Others, such as the Nike of Samothrace and the Lamassus, came from far away to become of one of the first public art collections in existence.
