The Louvre en anglais!

I love the Louvre.

If you are a frequent visitor of the site you will have noticed that the Louvre has released its collection database in English! It will now reach and attract an enormous audience of English readers (estimated 2 million!)

The database is called ATLAS and provides information and images of over 22,000 items. It is easy to use, and provides dates, important information and supplementary information on most works. It even offers the items location in the museum. The images are great and can be enlarged for viewing details. There are alternative views of items, including specific close ups. It is great if you are researching, planning a trip, looking for inspiration or just love art!

Check out ATLAS


  1. Oooh terrific! I was just wondering whether they had a good search system for their collections.

  2. Ooooh, this is wonderful news! Thank you kindly!
