This was an excellent seminar. Ms. Dessaillen covered three periods of art in the Louvre and had a lot of very interesting information to share.
I know that she is a fantastic expert on early art that I have always wanted to study but have run out of time. Thank you dear Marie! You were a "shortcut for this 88 year old who will now look into early French Art - I better hurry!
A very dense, comprehensive and scholarly lecture
Marie is the best-versed scholar in French history and the history of art I have ever had the privilege from whom to learn. The depth and breadth of her knowledge, as well as her friendly and energetic delivery, have made her my favorite Context lecturer.
Marie's presentation gave a great overview of the changes in French art from the Romanesque to the Renaissance. The stylistic changes were highlighted, as well as highlights from the Louvre. I can't wait to go to the Louvre and see the objects!
