Louis-François Bertin - Vignette

A closer look at Louis-François Bertin

In his portrait by Ingres, Monsieur Bertin, the founder of the newspaper Journal des Débats, embodies the thriving bourgeoisie of the 1830s. It took Ingres a lot of time and effort to find a pose which would convey a sense of power adequate to the press magnate.

Une Vierge romane - Vignette

A closer look at a Romanesque Virgin

The "Enthroned Virgin" acquired by the Louvre in 1894 is one of the most remarkable from the center of France. After restoration work in 2005, the sculpture has recovered its original colors - which can be admired in this special file.
