The Mystery of Mona Lisa’s Smile

 
Leonardo da Vinci’s masterpiece lives soundly in the Louvre--surrounded by her own personal bodyguards and bulletproof glass that is. Leonardo’s portrait of Lisa Gherardini has been through it all. Can you imagine being stolen from your home, returned two years later and still to this day mocked for what kind of expression you are making? Because of the wonder and awe behind her mysterious facade, Mona Lisa has become one of the most famous works of art around the world with an insurance policy worth over $800,000,000! Can you decide what expression she is making?
 

The Winged Victory of Samothrace

 
This beautiful statue from Samothrace, Greece is most notable for its beautiful body with wings extending from its back. The only thing missing is her head and to this day, no one knows what happened to it. The statue of Nike, the Greek goddess of victory, is a marble Hellenistic sculpture that is still praised to date because of its durability over time.
 

A Symbol of French Liberty

 
Although the Louvre is filled with works of art from all over, it is obvious that a museum in France would have brilliant works of art created by the most famous French artists. On this highlighted tour, you will get to see Eugène Delacroix’s painting Liberty Leading the People depicting one of the many revolutions in France. While on the tour, ask why the woman painted remains such a symbol for the French Republic and modern French culture.
 
 

The Mystery Behind Venus

 
Venus de Milo is one of the most famous ancient Greek statues ever created. Over the years, many sculptors have tried to take credit for the armless masterpiece. After much debate and research, the statue appears to have been created by Alexandros of Antioch. Although the statue appears to be depicting Aphrodite, the statue is actually named after the Greek island, Milos, where this larger than life statue was first discovered.
