Une visite au Louvre opens with a long panning shot along the embankment of the Seine before entering the museum to stop in front of the Winged Victory of Samothrace, the only sculpture in the film. Then we examine works by Ingres, Veronese, David, Delacroix, Courbet. The paintings are filmed whole – the camera never zooming in on a detail – in order to respect the format without subjecting it to the cinematic frame. On the soundtrack we hear the voice of Julie Koltaï, reading comments attributed to Cézanne taken from a biography of the painter published in 1921 by the Aix-based poet Joachim Gasquet.
