So, it is official. You no longer have to go to France and you don't have to read French to see and read all about the collection inside the Louvre.

This week the Louvre launched an English-language version of its online database available on its Web site, louvre.fr. The database, called Atlas, will provide information on 22,000 works of art from the Louvre, as well as high-resolution images and the locations of works and galleries within the museum.

Interesting!

Lucky you! I can't wait to go back to Paris. I think I am going to go for my birthday in November! Hope the lines are not to unbearable for you. If you get a chance, check out - Maison Europeenne de la Photographie. Beautiful...It is a museum located in a restored 1706 mansion,stunning classical architecture, original period prints, retrospective exhibits, and more than 12,000 rare books!

Let me know how it goes! ~MG
