Miss art museums? The Louvre just put its entire art collection online. The website showcases artworks from collections at the museum's eight departments, ranging from Islamic art and Renaissance sculptures to Egyptian antiquities and paintings from artists all over the world.
"Today, the Louvre is dusting off its treasures, even the least-known," Jean-Luc Martinez, the president and director of the Louvre, said in a statement. For the first time, anyone can access the entire collection of works from a computer or smartphone for free, whether they are on display in the museum, on loan, even long-term, or in storage.
The Louvre's stunning cultural heritage is all now just a click away!
Visitors can search through the museum's massive collections through simple or advanced searches, entries by curatorial department, or themed albums, the release said.
The website has an interactive map that allows people to explore the museum and every one of its artworks room by room.
