Jonathan Jones Says The Louvre's Art Is Wasted In A Small Industrial City
"The Louvre-Lens looks like a clumsy idea to me, a self-hating move by an institution that should be proud of its palatial magnificence. ... It is breaking up a collection that is one of the wonders of the world. For every visitor who makes the trip to Lens, there will be people frantically scouring the Louvre in Paris looking for the vanished Delacroix that is usually one of its highlights." The Guardian (UK) 12/04/12
