For your clients with taste for the arts – an exceptional privately guided visit of the Louvre ‘Color BLUE by Michel Pastoureau’.

 

Ignored by the ancient Greeks and despised by the Romans, how did this color, particularly appreciated by Yves Klein, become the Westerners’ favorite?

 

Almost totally absent from ancient Western art and language, the color blue enters the history of medieval Europe. As people began to associate blue with the Virgin Mary, the color is linked with the Church. Reborn as a royal color in the 12th Century, the color blue functioned as a formidable political and military force through the French Revolution. As blue triumphed in the modern era, new shades were created, and blue became the color of romance

 

Retrace Art History in the Louvre through the loop of this magnetic color, on the basis of research and publications of the historian, Michel Pastoureau. His book is offered with the visit.

 

Your guide is a leading French specialist in Medieval Art history and the Theory of Colors.  He holds the Chair of the History of Western Symbolism at the Sorbonne.

Chagall died in 1985, almost a centenarian. He had seen the Russian Revolution, two wars, exile and created works where one can read his experience of war and peace, of happiness and sorrow. The Exhibition shows the passages from one world to the other, from one color style to another. Between war and peace it illustrates the key moments in the life of Chagall.

 

On either Monday or Friday evenings your clients will have a privately guided viewing with a specialist lecturer, VIP welcome with Champagne and post exhibition diner catered by the famous Angelina.
