France’s world famous Louvre Museum launched an English language database on its website today.  According to the New York Times ArtsBeat Blog, “The database, called Atlas, will provide information on 22,000 works of art from the Louvre, as well as high-resolution images and the locations of works and galleries within the museum. That represents about 80 percent of the works available on the French-language version of Atlas, which catalogs 26,000 of the 35,000 works on permanent display at the Louvre.”
