Digital Collection of Masterpieces from the Louvre

The Louvre museum in Paris has put nearly half a million items from its collection online for the public to visit free of charge. As part of a major revamp of its online presence, the world’s most-visited museum has created a new database of 482,000 items with more than three-quarters already labeled with information and pictures. The new database includes not only items on public display in the museum but also those in storage, including at the museum’s new state-of-the-art facility at Lievin in northern France. The platform also includes the Delacroix museum, which is run by the Louvre, as well as sculptures from the neighboring Tuileries gardens and works recovered from Germany since the end of the war in 1945 that are waiting to be restored to the families from which they were looted. The museum is also intensifying its efforts to restore items looted from Jewish families by the Nazi regime. It is working to complete the verification of all 13,943 items acquired between 1933 and 1945, a process it hopes to complete within five years, to be followed by investigations on works acquired in later decades.
