Welcome to Une Révérence!
The currently exhibitions
The Winged Victory of Samothrace has been recently restored and replaced at the top of the stairs, in the Greec sculpture Gallery of Le Louvre.
A room in the Louvre shows us the mystery and history surrounding this statue we often reduce it to a simple winged and beheaded figure amidst a grand staircase.
Pieter Bruegel the Elder, The Parable of the Blind, 1568, distemper on linen canvas, 86 cm × 154 cm (34 in × 61 in), Museo di Capodimonte, Naples, Italy.
But he answering them, said: Every plant which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up. Let them alone: they are blind, and leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both will fall into the pit.
Matthew's Gospel, ch. 15 (13-14)
