See the Masterpieces with a guide and practice the drawing with an artist
The history of the Louvre Museum is magnificent. Its rich art collection is of unfathomable proportions. And so to pick which works to see or which galleries to visit inside the Louvre can be a mind-boggling experience. During our visit, I suggest a straight-forward approach! We will discover the history of European civilization through the many masterpieces of the Louvre.
After our guided tour we will head towards the large-size French paintings of the XIX century. That's where the drawing class will start with the professional artist Giorgio Silvestrini.
By relying on the copy of the masterpieces of Géricault, Delacroix, David, Ingres, Giorgio will put in place a private drawing class adapted to every single person. The lesson will enable you to establish the bases of drawing, or to increase the skills that you already have. And this while allowing you to understand deeply the structure of the artworks that you will be copying.
We will start our visit outside, at the most ancient part of the Palace of Louvre: "the Courtyard Court".
We will then skip the line and go inside the Louvre starting our visit at the Denon aisle and visit the remaining of the medieval protective wall of the Louvre.
We will continue with the Greek Antiquities section, the gallery of Italian paintings, and the Apollo gallery which houses today the treasuries of French Monarchy.
We will finish with the gallery devoted to 19th century French paintings where the lesson of drawing will start.
