Paris’ Louvre, Europe’s Greatest Collection of Art

The Louvre’s huge collection covers art history from ancient times to about 1850. The crowded Grand Gallery — while a quarter-mile long — displays only a small part of the Louvre’s collection. His private paintings became the core of the Louvre’s collection. Leonardo’s work epitomized the esthetics of the Renaissance, and the Louvre’s collection of his paintings demonstrates his lasting influence. The French Revolution was all about ending kings…so Napoleon crowned himself “emperor.” The politically correct art style of the time was Neoclassical.
