Why Every Student Must Save Enough Money to Visit the Louvre at Least Once?

Whether or not you are an art student who needs to effectively write about the artifacts in the Louvre Museum; without taking any external British dissertation help, you must at least visit it once. The highly acclaimed, historic and intriguing art pieces should certainly be acknowledged.

The visitor count surged surprisingly by 25% after the famous video by the international artists, Beyoncé and Jay Z went viral with about 147 million views. After the series of terrorists attacks in Paris and with a direct attack at the property of the museum, 2017 was a fairly rough year for the country’s tourism industry. But thanks to the global attention through the creatively directed and symbolic music video of the artists, this year the Louvre was visited by 10 million tourists. If you are a student studying architecture, design, engineering, art, history or are even remotely interested in finding experiencing something new and exciting you must see the following art collections that have also been depicted in the music video:

  • The Perpetually Famous Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci (1503-1506)

The majestic painting that cannot be bought or sold is a masterpiece by Leonardo da Vinci. To date people are intrigued how this simplistic portrait, though far ahead of its times, can actually be deciphered in so many ways. People are uncertain about her facial expressions and the gaze that seems to be following them. The portrait was once stolen, but after being retrieved it has its own room in the Louvre and is universally famous.

  • Great Sphinx of Tanis (Old Kingdom, 2600 BC, Old Kingdom)

The sphinx, which is a lion with a human head is a typical monument found in Egypt. The sphinx is dedicated to the pharaohs Ammenemes II (12th Dynasty, 1929-1895 BC), Merneptah (19th Dynasty, 1212-02 BC) and Shoshenq I (22nd Dynasty, 945-24 BC) whose names are inscribed on it. The sphinx is one of the biggest monuments in the Louvre; one must take into consideration the fact that this gigantic, granite monument was made in the times when people do not have any modern technologies to make such magnificent structures. BRITISH DISSERTATION HELP has had many students write dissertations about the symbolic importance of grandeur related to sphinxes by the pharaohs.

  • Botticelli’s Venus with Three Graces (1483-1486)

Found at Villa Lemmi in 1873, the painting is symbolic of the gods that were worshipped at that time. One more painting was discovered there; both of which have been persevered and put on canvas. Venus, the goddess on the left with two of her graces is seen gifting the lady, presumably Nanna di Niccolò Tornabuoni, roses in a white cloth. Venus, the goddess of love is symbolically blessing the lady on the right with bounty. The presence of the three graces also brings glad tidings of magnified blessings.

  • Michelangelo’s Dying Slave (1513-1516)

This masterpiece may not be quite a delight for the conservatives. The Dying Slave was initially sculpted by Michelangelo for the tomb of Julius II. The fine contours of the human body are truly admirable; especially since it probably took the sculptor hours of unfaltering focus and effort to get the perfect shape; and while doing so he also depicted the expressions to project his art in a manner that effectively conveys the story.

  • The Raft of the Medusa by Théodore Géricault (1818-1819)

The painter of romanticism, Theodore Gericault, depicted a rather dark and symbolic real life event in his painting. The raft of Medusa was an actual raft, a twenty meters long wooden platform that was built by the passengers after a fatal shipwreck. It was certainly not big enough to accommodate 150 passengers who had been miserably abandoned by the officers in the shipwreck. The officers selfishly tried to save themselves by securing all the lifeboats; while the poor passengers were left to the fate of the deadly sea. The passengers spent thirteen days on the raft until they were rescued by a military vessel, Angus. But only fifteen people survived.

The real life events created quite a buzz and horror for the people who heard the story. Since the captain did not possess the right skills to sail a ship and on top of that he was given a light sentence mush to the public people’s dismay. Moreover, the horrific stories about the passenger on the raft who resorted to cannibalism can also be seen in the dark theme of the painting.

We are certain that your visit to the Louvre would be one smart investment – especially if you are a travelling enthusiast. You will not only learn deeply about art and its history, but you will also come back home feeling inspired, with an urge for flexing your own creative muscle. It is certainly an enlightening and entertaining visit, so start saving up right away!
