Anyway............after Notre Dame, we headed for the Louvre. What an incredible place that is!!!!! Probably the largest crowd was clustered around the Mona Lisa. Now I had imagined this painting would be quite large. Not so. The painting is probably 24 x 30. There is just a hint of a smile on her face, and I couldn't help but wonder what little secret she was carrying. ..or had something struck her funnybone as she posed? Was she with child as many suspect? Questions with no answers leave us open to pondering....imagining....hmmmmmmm.
In addition to the Mona Lisa, the Louvre houses so many incredible sculptures and paintings. The Impressionists are one of my favorites. Monet's pieces really touch my heart.....in fact, I purchased a copy of one to have framed for our living room. Magnificent, really magnificent.
