The Louvre

Posted: February 16, 2011 in Uncategorized

Another magnificent museum, and the most visited art museum in the world, is the Louvre.

Through its history, the Louvre has been a fort, a palace, a government building and a museum, and it has been a repository of sculpted material since its time as a palace. Its many stately galleries and elegant rooms today house statuary and pieces from the Mediterranean Basin dating from the Neolithic to the 6th century.

The museum also features exquisite examples of plastered ceilings, such as the one decorated by Georges Braque’s “Les Oiseaux”, and plastered walls framing classic frescoes.

Where you see the frescoes on the walls and ceilings, the Tattowall can duplicate it exactly!
