TOUR OF THE LOUVRE – my way

I have this bizarre attraction to these maddeningly beautiful paintings

which I was lucky to see at the Louvre  in Paris and the Tate Modern in London.

paul delaroche – the young martyr, 1855 – Louvre Museum in Paris

The painting of the young martyr by Paul Delaroche caught my eye the first time I visited the Louvre. Taking photos at that time was not allowed but that image was stuck in my mind forever. When I had another opportunity to revisit the musée, I tried to look for that eerie painting again. Good thing, visitors are now allowed to shoot (without flash bien sur).

I find big museums overwhelming so on my second visit, I just focused on pieces that caught my fancy.

I tried to amuse myself and looked at the artworks differently.

stop, dance

Sometimes, we need to learn how to take Art NOT too seriously.
