Louvre Lens

Everytime I visit a museum I take a lot of photos, which then are stored on my external hard drive. I’ve been going through these files and decided to show a few of these photos. So let’s get started with the first one, my visit to Louvre Lens on valentine’s day 2016 with the best company I could wish for.

Whether you are into art or not, everyone knows the Louvre that’s located in Paris. It’s without a doubt one of the most famous museums in the world. The Louvre has been around for a very long time, which means their collection is enormous and even the building wasn’t able to give every art piece a place. That’s why the Louvre decided to open a new museum in 2012, called Louvre Lens. It’s located north of Paris, very close to the Belgian border, in the city Lens. As a Belgian art history student it’s a perfect location to impulsively decide to go on a daytrip.

I could spend hours in their timelime room, as I like to call it. As you can see in the photos it’s this well lite room with an atypical presentation of all the pieces of art. At the top of one wall there’s a timeline, which correspond to the presented sculptures and paintings. As you walk through the room you experience a sort of time travel.

As you look from certain angles, you’ll see that some of the pieces correspond to each other, like these sculptures. It shows the representation of the human body through time.
