Louvre - Salle Duchatel - Room V. - Italian And French Schools
IN the fifth room, called Salle Duchâtel, are a number of important frescoes by Luini, transferred from the Litta Palace. Of all Italian painters Luini, perhaps, shows the influence of Leonardo the most.
Louvre - Grande Galerie - Italian Divisions
THE Grande Galerie, numbered VI. on the plan, is divided into six bays. The first three of these, and part of the fourth, are devoted to the Italian school.
Louvre - Grande Galerie - Bay Thrid - Italian Division
THE third bay, marked C in the Louvre catalogue, may be called Raphael's room, though a few other painters are also represented.
Louvre - Grande Galerie - Spanish, German And English Divisions
THE Spanish pictures in the Louvre are inadequate, considering the importance of the school, but there are a few of the more important masters that are well worth exhaustive study.
Louvre - Grande Galerie - Flemish Schools
THE last two sections of the Grande Galerie contain some of the important pictures of the Flemish masters, the larger number of the remainder owned by the Louvre being in the new rooms opened in 1900.
Louvre - Salle Van Dyck And Galerie Rubens
THE new Van Dyck and Rubens rooms lead out from the Grande Galerie. On each side of the Galerie Rubens are the so-called cabinets where are to be found the largest number of Dutch and Flemish pictures owned by the Louvre.
Louvre - Salles XIX. To XXXVI. - Flemish School
THE small rooms on either side of the Galerie Rubens contain the larger number of the Dutch and Flemish pictures owned by the Louvre. Among them are many that formed part of the Collection Lacaze. Though the two schools are hung together, it will be easier, perhaps, to discuss them separately.
Louvre - Salles XIX. To XXXVI. - Dutch School
IN Salle XXXIV. are two portraits of women by Jan van Ravestein, the Dutch painter, who, with the exception of Hals and Rembrandt was scarcely ever equalled as a portrait-painter in his country.
Louvre - Salon Carre
THE Salon Carré marked Room IV. on the plan, contains the chief gems of the Italian paintings owned by the Louvre, as well as a few examples of other schools.
Louvre - Les Petites Salles Francaises - Italian And French Schools
THE Petites Salles Françaises lead out of the long gallery from Bay D and, as their name indicates are small rooms mostly containing French pictures. In Room IX., however, are a number of late Italian works, few of which are of any great interest.
Louvre - Salle Mollien - Room XIV. - French School
WITH the exception of the few early men of the school that are to be found in the Petites Salles Françaises, the Louvre's collection of French pictures commences with Room XIV. called often Salle Mollien.
Louvre - Salle Daru - French School - Room XVT.
SALLE DARU numbered XVI. on the plan, contains French paintings of the eighteenth century. The beginning of this century found art at a low ebb in France. All artists except Le Moine and De Troy and a few portrait-painters, were living in great poverty.
Louvre - Salles Henri II. And Des Sept Cheminees - Room II. And Room III. - French School
THESE two rooms contain French pictures of the end of the eighteenth and beginning of the nineteenth century. Salle Henri II. is badly lighted and even the important pictures, of which there are few, cannot be well seen.
Louvre - Salles Des Etats - Room VIM - French School
THE Salle des Etats, Room VIII. on the plan, opens at one end into the Grande Galerie and at the other into Salle Denon. It contains French pictures mostly of the second and third quarters of the nineteenth century, and, with the Thomy-Thiéry collection includes most of the greatest gems of French art owned by the Louvre.
Louvre - Salle Lacaze - Room I. - All Schools
In 1869 M. Lacaze left to the Louvre a large collection of paintings, principally of Flemish, Dutch and French painters. As already noted the Dutch and most of the Flemish pictures have been put into the Cabinets on either side of the Rubens Gallery.
Louvre - Salle Denon - Room XV. - All Schools - Portraits
SALLE DENON, marked Room XV. on the plan, is re-served for portraits of artists. It was opened in 1887 and is modelled on the general lines of the collection of portraits in the Uffizi.
Louvre - Thomy - Thiery Salles - French School
WITH the opening of the Thomy-Thiéry collection in 1903, three more rooms of the Louvre were given up to paintings. These rooms are far from the rest of the picture-gallery, being up-stairs and across the court, over the double colonnade of Louis XIV., at the end of the Musée de Marine.
Psychic - What Constitutes Evidence?
IN the autumn of 1915, when the casualty lists were terribly lengthening, the Editor of the International Psychic Gazette asked a number of eminent men to send, if possible, messages of comfort to the bereaved for publication.
Psychic - Dreams
IT may be urged, quite legitimately, that some of these dream-coincidences now to be related may happen by accident. Out of the immense number of our dreams it is to be expected that some of them will represent some real fact not normally known to the dreamer.
Psychic - Clairvoyance Or Telepathy?
THE word clairvoyance has been used at times for almost any kind of supernormal perception, and it is usual to designate as normal clairvoyance the descriptions and names and messages given by a medium not in trance, though some of these are almost certainly telepathy from the dead.
Psychic - Out Of The Body Experiences
IN some of the foregoing cases spirits are perceived, so to speak, from this side. We cannot experience that side permanently until we are dead. But some people have crossed temporarily and have returned to the body to tell the tale.
Psychic - Visions Of The Dead
AFTER considering these out-of-the-body experiences, and assuming for the moment that they represent something real, it is natural to suppose that death is the same thing, save that the withdrawal becomes permanent.
Psychic - Visions Of The Dead - Spritualism And Insanity
For myself I have been amazed by the revelation of the recent spread of so-called spiritualism, and believe this spread has been largely due to the influence of writings, some of which, unfortunately, have been issued by men belonging to the world of science...
Psychic - Modern Spiritualism
SIR,—The letter of `A Doctor's Wife' on `Spiritualism and Insanity' leads me to pen a short note to you on an allied subject. Spiritualism has for long been investigated by many and exploited by not a few.
Psychic - Meeting Cases
0NE of the things I am most sure of is the fact that we are met at death by friends who have gone before. This has been proved to me by many curious pieces of evidence, some of which are described in my book, Psychical Investigations.
Psychic - Metetherial Imprints
IT was thought by F. W. H. Myers that, when a particularly stressful and emotional event occurs, some impression is made on the etherial or metetherial environment, and that this persists and can be perceived, when conditions are favourable, by people with psychical sensitiveness.
Psychic - Communication By Motor Response
THUS far we have been dealing mostly with so-called sensory automatisms of the spontaneous type ; but the experiences of non-professional sensitives are, of course, not con-fined to these. They include all the phenomena, such as automatic writing, and speech or writing in trance, which are observed in the despised race of mediums.
Psychic - A Perhaps Incredible Story
THE fact that psychical experiences are relatively uncommon is no proof that they are negligible. Eclipses are uncommon, and they cannot be produced to order; but they can be carefully observed and dated when they occur, and this process has enabled us to understand them.
Psychic - Mystical Experiences
HITHERTO we have been dealing with experiences more or less evidential, and certainly referable to the senses of the percipient, though perhaps to some extent supernormal.
The Collection Of Wallace And Tate Galleries
Before taking you round Hertford House and showing you some of its treasures I should like to tell you how it is that we, you and I and all the world, come to possess these beautiful pictures, porcelain, armour, statuary, and many other things I shall not have space to mention.
