What you can expect
Who would think that a woman with no arms or head could be considered one of the strongest, most beautiful depictions of female power in the world. Yet, it takes only a few moment's gazes, with its mastery of form and movement, to clearly see and feel this power. This woman commands attention in the busiest museum in the world, the Louvre in Paris - and this woman is known as the Winged Victory of Samothrace. She is only one of the thousands of masterpieces to grace the gallery.
During this live online tour from home, let your imagination take over as your expert guide from their home in Paris takes you on an adventure through to the City of Light and into the world’s largest collection of art and artefacts. As paintings and sculptures line the walls, pause at the various masterpieces that have attracted visitors for centuries. Hear of the foundations of the museum from a King’s fortress castle to an opulent palace, and now the safe for priceless works of art.
From its hushed plinth, the ancient statue of Venus de Milo speaks volumes to those who listen - as your storytelling guide exposes all the small details often missed by casual observers. Onto the commanding statue of the Winged Victory hear the tale of her escape during wartime and the ongoing fight to return her to her origins. Not only will your guide share with you the various articles of interest, but they will also help make art and history entertaining and enjoyable for all.
