Inside the Louvre


Inside the Louvre, here is a picture of the Grand Salon (Great Lounge) in the Napoleon III appartements. It shows the typical taste for luxury of this period.

Great work of composition on a difficul subject in interns.

Beautiful detail everywhere you look. Certainly nothing like my home.

Now I'm wondering if I saw this. The Louvre is so big, you could spend days and days here. This is a lovely image!

I remember seeing this. As I recall there is another very enchanting room nearby. I hope that you have other photos from the Louvre to share with us.

Laurent, do you ever dine in the 5e arrondissement? If so, I have a restaurant to recommend to you.

J'adore la sculpture, Winged Victory. Avez-vous des photos pour nous?

Very luxurious! You captured it very well! Great shot!

James said...

Very nice, It sort of reminds me of the Musée Jacquemart-André on Blvd Haussmann. No photography allowed in there.

Jacob said...

Thank you for this photo. We were in the Louvre, but we didn't see this!

I didn't know that the Louvre had recreations of entire rooms — I always thought it was all paintings and sculptures. This is magnificent!

Sorry Harriet but I wont't be able to recommend a restaurant in the 5th arrondissement for you because I vey rarely dine there.
