Despite the painting's fame, the facial expression of the subject has been endlessly debated - is she happy or sad? The painting holds a Guinness World Record for the highest insurance policy - approximately $800,000,000! Yet few people really know anything about the acclaimed painting, its story and the fascination with the woman it depicts. Your professional guide can't wait to share the stories behind it.

Discovered on the small island of Samothrace in 1863, historians estimate that it was created around 2nd century B.C..Your guide will tell you the story behind this winged goddess and her importance to various cultures. 

A Symbol of French Liberty

Since you’re in France, it’s only fitting that you see some of the most famous paintings created by French artists. During your tour, you’ll visit Eugène Delacroix’s painting Liberty Leading the People. This work of art commemorates a revolution (one of many!) that took place in 1830 in France. During your tour, you’ll find out why the female figure in the painting has become a prominent symbol in modern French culture, and what she signifies for members of the French Republic.
