Until now, the works were carried out by not including any color in the pieces. In the fourth stage there is an important qualitative leap. From the year 1999 adds color to his works, which refined his art and earn a lot worse in the face of their expressiveness. And in its current stage is replacing industrial glass used in earlier stages of optical glass, of much higher quality than the previous one and that allows you to work a lot more refined in terms of expressiveness of colors and forms. On our visit to this new exhibition certainly enjoy their work in this retrospective.

Bert van Loo was born in Holland in 1946. Van Loo's work is classified into six different times. In the first three phases, Bert van Loo uses figurative language and symbols as a means of expression sometimes resorting to clear glass or color on a black background always to provide greater contrast. In the subsequent phases the

author approaches a more abstract language that incorporates the use of other materials, is the case of the stone combined with lead.

In addition to many works of workshop, the sculptor has made many custom pieces of monumental for different institutions and Dutch cities.

The last phase is part of a more conceptual field and sometimes engaged with the outside world in which he lives, because, according to Van Loo himself, "a work of art must come from the amalgam caused between emotion and reason» .

Van Loo, who has made guest appearances in major glass schools, art academies and universities, is a member of several committees and councils in the Netherlands cultural and art consultant in various institutions.

Glassblower for many designers, is himself an artist. Indeed, his creations are unique, the combination is one of its principles. Words, images, sounds, Jeremy Maxwell often follow their intuitions. Art and design Jeremy Maxwell describes his work as "intuitive science". Mind and technique are mixed, and this is what makes your universe is original. His pieces are truly art within the meaning of the word (Latin Ars, artis: technical knowledge skill). The addition of color (including the application requires a very precise technique) accentuates the ambiguity of certain creations. The work becomes poetic and is in perfect harmony with what is called the design.

This project is signed Japanese studio SANAA, true to his white, ethereal style, the museum tries to dematerialize their perception from the inside, so that the works on display are those that charge the viewer's attention away.

Some glass roofs also can see the sky and make the most of natural light.

Under austere minimalist design, simple shapes and glass and aluminum as main materials, is totally opposed to the pomposity that awakens the Louvre. The glass combined in different transparencies creates reflections and ripples.

The rooms are aligned and flush with the street, are large, no walls and hang pictures of movable panels, which are changed according to the statement.

Besides boasting works by Perugino, Raphael, Botticelli and Rubens, which visitors can admire boxes next to the Louvre essential others, as "Portrait of Mariana Waldstein" of Francisco de Goya and "Antonio de Covarrubias y Leiva" of El Greco.
