Painting Love in the Louvre Collections
Love is in the air at The National Art Center, where a series of paintings borrowed from the Louvre in Paris have been curated based on their fiery portrayals of passion and romance. The series will include a total of 70 masterpieces created between the 16th and mid-19th century. Featured artists include François Boucher, Jean-Honoré Fragonard and François Gérard, among other visionaries from Europe. The exhibition launches at the beginning of March, so it won’t be open in time for Valentine’s Day, but that only reaffirms the fact that impassioned displays of affection shouldn’t be confined to just one commercial holiday.
