Alterpieces (Louvre)

Posted on Updated on

A large source of artwork is that retrieved from Churches
Alterpieces appear behind the Alter
Reredos include a series of objects and images

We remember our first European trip, to Berlin
it may have been the Gemäldegalerie (but I am increasing less sure)
(it was near the Berlin Philharmonic Concert Hall and a Modern Art Museum)
There were large rooms of Art and one was dominated by Alterpieces

Alterpieces are abundant at La Lourve

Also Church Sculptures and Carving
Such as Saint Mary Magdalene (one of the most popular pieces of La Louvre
Saint Mary Magdalene
