Musée du Louvre Launches Online Database in English

Art Museum Journal (Stan Parchin)

Paris' Musée du Louvre announced today the launch of its first-ever English-language version of Atlas, its free-of-charge online collections database. Supported by €300,000 in grants raised by American Friends of the Louvre, it goes live tomorrow morning.

Some 22, 000 works of art, accompanied by high-resolution images and information about their specific locations within the museum, are now described in English on the Louvre's Web site.

Needless to say the Egyptian department has a presence in the database! See the above page for the full story.
