Memory of The Lourve

One of my most captivating memories in Paris is The Lourve. We have all hear countless accounts of it but nothing beats visiting in this heaven of arts in person and seeing it through my own eyes.

My absolute favourite painting is “The Consecration of the Emperor Napoleon and the Coronation of Empress Joséphine on December 2, 1804”. I was so enthralled that I sat down in front of the painting and simply stared. Going through each facial expression that is captured in such lifelike details. I wondered how David was able to commit the scene in his memory and captured them in such fine details.

See here for an introduction.

I also particularly like this painting. The grace, the look of motherly devotion, the tint of smile and bashfulness seems to be perfectly illustrated.
