Musée du Louvre

Introduction

Unit image

This unit will help you to understand how major art collections are brought together over long periods of time and why particular pieces gain notoriety.

The unit is based on a series of video clips taken from a TV programme created originally for the OU course A216 Art and its histories which is no longer taught by the University. If you want to study formally with us, you may wish to explore other courses we offer in this subject area [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)] . The complete TV programme lasts about 50 minutes, and it is quite rich and detailed, so you might like to return to this unit to view the programme again once you have progressed your studies in the history of art.
