The Louvre is one of the largest palaces in the world and also a national art museum. This national heritage is home to some of the world's most famous paintings made by some of the illustrious painters, such as Jean Clouet, Leonardo da Vinci, Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, and many others.
Brief History
The Louvre (loov'-ruh) was earlier the residence of many French kings and queens. It was built in the 13th century by Phillip II Augustus, and was used as a fort in order to defend Seine river from the Normans and the English. This fort was later changed into a museum, Musée du Louvre, during the late 18th century. It contained some of the former royal sculptures and potraits of the royal family. Today, this museum contains some famous antiquities from ancient Egypt, the Middle Ages, the Greek, and the Roman period. It also includes souvenirs from the modern times.
