A Day In the Louvre

Just a little sample of my favorite paintings in the Louvre. I started my tour with the Italians…

Lorenzo Veneziano (active in Venice between1356-1372)

Antomio Vivarini ( Murano, 1476-1484)

The Cimabue expert
(Cimabue was active before 1251)

Giovanni da Modena (1478-2484)

Botticelli (Florence 1415-1510)
The first Botticelli fresco I have ever seen.

Ghirlandaio (Florence 1449=1494)

Pietro Perugino (1450-1523) painted beautiful pictures, a lot of which are frescoes in Perugia, Italy, and he is very recognisable by the uniform mouths he gave everybody…

Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519)

Giovanni Pietro Rizzoli (Milan, 1495-1549)
The Death of Cleopatra - Detail

Tiziano (1488-1576) The Portrait of Francis I

Piero Della Francesca (1416-1492)
The Portrait of Sigismondo Pandolfo Malatesta

and the one that stands all by herself and that everybody came to see in the first place: MONA LISA

      I see you could get about as close to the Mona Lisa as I could get! Your other painting captures are fabulous, as always!

      Oh!! thanks so much for sharing! Many of your Italian Renaissance artists bring back wonderful memories of my first year in college and a wonderful art history professor I had.
      I have been blessed to see the Sistine Ceiling and the "Last Supper" I hope to one day get to the Louvre!
