Here’s How You Can View The Louvre’s Entire Art Collection Online

That’s right, 482,000 works have been uploaded to the museum’s virtual database – meaning anyone from a scholar to an art enthusiast can browse all genres, which include; painting, sculptures, and furniture.

 

 

Also, everything is organised according to the artist, time period, and curatorial department if you’re looking for anything specific…

You can access the database with a computer, tablet, or smartphone, and it even includes an interactive map, so that virtual visitors can explore the Louvre room-by-room, as well as several languages (don’t worry, that includes English).

 

 

In a statement, the President-Director of the Louvre, Jean-Luc Martinez said, ‘Today, the Louvre is dusting off its treasures, even the least-known. For the first time, anyone can access the entire collection of works from a computer or smartphone for free…’

 

 

Honestly, this a great feature, given that none of us can really make it to a museum right now – oh, and you don’t have to interact with anyone! Genius.
