The Louvre (Paris, France)

This is the exit or entrance to the Louvre. Very sleek! The painting belowe
I thought was very sensual, magical or mystical. Think she's casting a love spell on him??????

My first trip to the Louvre and I was blown away. I loved the Renaissance look with the ultra modern. Kind of like the yin and yang. Opposites that compliment.

One of my favorite paintings was "The Young Martyr" by Paul Delaroche 1855 oil.

On our way going to the Louvre on the backside was this young maiden tucked away in a corner by herself
playing the flute. The sound was so enchanting you could imagine yourself back in the days when it must have been an everyday scene!
