La Grèce au Louvre

Author(s): Jean-Luc  Martinez

€ 20.50 tax included

The Greek art collections at the Musée du Louvre, among the most important in the world, help to enlighten our vision of Classic Antiquity such as it was experienced by the Ancient Greeks. Sculptures, vases, jewelry, and small monuments offer an opportunity to discover the many facets of a highly sophisticated civilization whose many values and advances constitute the fundamental elements of our society. How did the Ancient Greeks live? Which gods and heroes did they venerate? What did the notions of Tyranny, Democracy, and History mean to them?

The exhibition "La Grèce est au Louvre" (Greece is at the Louvre) aims to clarify for all, with the backing of visual documents, the wealth of fundamental information about this brilliant civilization.
