What you'll do

World class curators have placed every artwork to help us understand the evolution of Western civilisation. Let me lead you through the great journey of art history. Meeting under the Pyramid, we will waste no time exploring the treasures the Louvre has to offer. From its roots in Classical Antiquity through the Italian Renaissance to the dominance of the Academy in France with many twists and turns along the way. As an artist trained in the techniques of the old masters, and as art historian with links to restoration laboratories, I have genuine inside knowledge and will share with you new ways of looking at paintings. More than the typical tourist tour, take away lasting knowledge with your memories. Audio sets are provided so you can hear me in comfort in the

Kate

Not just a tour guide! I am a qualified Art Historian but first and foremost an award winning professional portrait artist - instagram @katechartierportraits. After a lifetime spent practising and studying art, I have a wealth of unique knowledge to share. From the Ecole des Beaux Arts to the Paris Salon, I have taken a very similar path to the generations of artists before me and feel a real connection with the art I show my visitors. Following tradition, for 3 years I was copy artist in the Louvre. As Degas famously said, “it is the only way to understand art”.Come with me behind the surface and learn what art can tell us about our civilisation.

Where you'll be

Don’t believe my very traditional training means I disregard modern and contemporary art! On the contrary, I also do tours of Orsay, Pompidou, MAM and Picasso on request. I also do tours for schools and children of all ages based on sound educational principles. Check out my “Stories and Heroes” tour for families
