I hadn’t realized that the Louvre Art Museum was indeed constructed upon the ancient grounds of the Louvre Castle.
Nor had I anticipated that the name tags with all the descriptions of the art would be in, you guessed it, French. Why that had escaped my mind, I do not know.
At any rate, here is a whimsical and very small cross section of the incredible art and cultural history through the eons that one can see on their visit to the Louvre.
Authors note: While some of my photos and comments may appear to be light and whimsical, no disrespect is meant to the art, to the cultures, nor to hard-core art history buffs. Through a large portion of the visit I was feeling very reverent and speechless with the experience. It was really amazing to walk through that place that holds so much world history via artistic expressions. Thank you for understanding~
Thank you for enjoying these photos. I hope that someday you can enjoy the Louvre in person, it’s definitely memorable.
