MIRRORS – Louvre Museum, until September 18, 2017

Mirrors and reflections are the criteria chosen for an special selection of artworks. For the painter engaged in a self-portrait (paintings imitating reality), mirror is also the indispensable accessory. A group of works (from the 16th century through to the present day) invite you to hone your eyes on what you are seeing. As you know, the mirror is a complex object, full of truth and illusion. Entering the Louvre-Lens Museum and visiting the art exhibition “Mirrors” http://www.louvre.fr/en/oeuvre-notices/mirror you will find, that the reflection in a mirror is never unambiguous.

So very ordinary today, the mirror remains a complex object. Through the optical effects artists show how mirror’s reflections have many different perspectives. You can discover, that Titian pictured young Venetian woman daydreaming at her toilet. She is standing, face-on, and a bearded man is holding two mirrors for her (one in front and the other behind). The exhibition Mirrors offers a journey in three stages, covering all the eras from the 16th century to the present day.
