Photographer's Note

The origins of the Louvre date to 1200 when Philippe August began construction of a fortress on the banks of the Seine and it first became the official royal residence under Charles V.
The Louvre Museum is one of the largest and most famous museums in the world. The building lies in the centre of Paris, between the Seine river and the Rue de Rivoli. It´s central courtyard is now occupied by I.M. Pei's glass pyramid providing a modern entrance to the various museums.
It includes masterpieces such as the Venus of Milo, the Winged Victory of Samothrace, the Mona Lisa of Leonard da Vinci, and so many others.
