The Mystery of Mona Lisa’s Smile

Leonardo da Vinci’s masterpiece lives soundly in the Louvre--surrounded by her own personal bodyguards and bulletproof glass that is. Da Vinci's Mona Lisa has been through it all. Can you imagine being stolen from your home, returned two years later and eternally mocked for the facial expression that you are making?

Because of the wonder and awe behind her mysterious smile, Mona Lisa has become one of the most famous painting in the world, boasting an insurance policy worth over $800,000,000! Can you tell what she is thinking, behind that knowing smile?

The Winged Victory of Samothrace

This beautiful statue from Samothrace, Greece, is most notable for its beautiful body with wings extending from its back. The only thing missing is her head and to this day, no one knows what happened to it. The statue of Nike, the Greek goddess of victory, is a marble Hellenistic sculpture that is still praised to date for its timeless durability.

A Symbol of French Liberty

Although the Louvre is filled with works of art from around the globe, it is also to be expected that a museum in France would also house brilliant works of art, created by the most famous French artists. On this highlights tour, you will get to see Eugène Delacroix’s painting Liberty Leading the People, which depicts one of France’s many revolutions. While on the tour, ask why the woman painted endures as a symbol for the French Republic and modern French culture.

The Mystery Behind Venus

Venus de Milo is one of the most recognized ancient Greek statues ever created. Over the years, many sculptors have tried to take credit for this armless masterpiece. However, after much debate and research, the statue has been attributed to Alexandros of Antioch. Although the statue appears to be depicting Aphrodite, the statue is actually named after the Greek island, Milos, where this larger than life masterpiece was first discovered. Interestingly, the statue was made famous in the 1800’s by the French government, who looked to promote their new ancient greek statue of Venus after they had to give their previous Venus statue back to the Uffizi Gallery, in Florence. Decide for yourself which statue is more impressive, once you’ve been to the Uffizi and seen for yourself.

Napoleon's Personal Treasure Trove: Louvre Virtual Tour

The lecturer was knowledgeable and shared fascinating observations and facts not typically conveyed in text books. I'd like to add that the format is not of a tour but instead photos accompanied by the guide's presentation. It's interactive through the chat line. I enjoyed it nonetheless and look forward to more.

This hour was so well spent. Our fabulous guide covered some of the most famous works of art (Winged Victory, for instance) but made each piece of familiar art so interesting with the backstory and interesting details. I normally walk quickly past the most famous works, but will not make that mistake next time I am able to visit the Louvre in person. Highly recommend this tour. Really fun and interesting.
