At the Louvre

view-from-Louvre

THIS is how Paris is supposed to look in January!

The weather won’t always be wonderful! Rainy day in Paris today, though it improved by mid-afternoon.  A bit colder than it has been too. On Monday nearly every museum is closed except the Louvre so that’s where I went for my Parisian rainy day. I won’t show you the 80 pictures I took of wonderful works of art nor will I tell you how many Virgins are in Paris (thousands!) and where most of them will be found. I’ll show you just a taste of this magnificent palace to remind those who have been there of their visits and to tempt others into coming to France.

Louvre-through-the-Pyramid

A view of one bit of the enormous building as seen through I.M. Pei’s Glass Pyramid.

Louvre-1

Just one example of how grand this place is. There were two Michelangelo sculptures in this room.

Louvre-3

Another spectacular space.

Louvre-2

Yes! Of course the art I most wanted to see was in the far corner of the other side on the top floor!

Dark-Vader

This guy is showing up everywhere! Who would expect him in a special exhibition at the Louvre? (Note the spelling.)
