Theoretically there are five great art museums in the world: The Met, The Hermitage, MoMA, El Prado, and The Louvre. I don't know who made the list or what the standards were, but I have long remembered the list after hearing it some time ago. I have been lucky enough to wander The Louvre several times in my life. Each and every time it's an overwhelming experience. I find myself as in awe of the building itself as I am of the art on the walls. Today's post is therefore 90% about the architecture. Check it out:
Tomorrow I promise photos of the art hanging on these spectacular walls!
Thanks for stopping by!
