The actual Louvre palace replaced a huge medieval fortress. Part of the curtain wall is still visible under the reversed pyramid. It was build to protect the city of Paris against the Plantagenet, a famous English family…
http://www.histoire-fr.com/images/maquet…During the 15th century the French kings disliked it so much they never set foot there, choosing instead better and more comfortables castles outside Paris or if in Paris other houses. It was even used as a prison for a time.
King Francis I က   Louvre ကို အသစ္တည္ေဆာက္

The new Louvre was started by the first king of the French Renaissance, Francis 1st.

There’s two pyramids, one above ground pointing up, one pointing underground on the round about

For a long time one wing of the museum housed the Finance ministry. The ministry was moved in the 80’s to a brand new building and the rooms freed were used to show more artwork.

it is the third biggest museum in the world after the Metropolitan Museum of Art of New York and the Hermitage in St Petersburg

During WWII the museums best pieces were hidden in different places. Part of the museum was used by the Nazis as a warehouse to house all the artwork they stole from Jews, museums and castles. Goering himself came to do his shopping there to choose what he wanted in his different houses.

The two most well knows statues in the museum are the Venus of Milo and the victory of Samothrace.

The book Da Vinci code played fast and loose with a lot of fact, one of them being that the traffic along the Louvre on the river side goes the wrong way if you want to go west. If ever you managed to jump on a truck as the hero did you would be driven east on a one way street.

There is a legend about a haunting by a mummy called Belphegor, the story has been used by film makers and book writers

The garden of the Tuileries, now part of the Louvre, also has a haunting. The red man. Supposedly a killer used by the queen Catherine of Medicis, she had him murdered and he cursed her, saying ‘I will come back’. Ever since a red silhouette is said to have appeared to all the rulers that ended badly.

History of the Louvre

From Château to Museum

History of the Louvre | Louvre Museum | Paris

 

 

The Louvre, in its successive architectural metamorphoses, has dominated central Paris since the late 12th century. Built on the city’s western edge, the original structure was gradually engulfed as the city grew. The dark fortress of the early days was transformed into the modernized dwelling of François I and, later, the sumptuous palace of the Sun King, Louis XIV. Here we explore the history of this extraordinary edifice and of the museum that has occupied it since 1793.

The Middle Ages

During the forty-three-year reign of Philippe Auguste (1180–1223), the power and influence of the French monarchy grew considerably, both inside and outside the kingdom. In 1190, a rampart was built around Paris, which was Europe’s biggest city at the time. To protect the capital from the Anglo-Norman threat, the king decided to reinforce its defenses with a fortress, which came to be known as the Louvre. It was built to the west of the city, on the banks of the Seine.

……

1793

Opening of the Museum Central des Arts

The Museum Central des Arts opened its doors on August 10, 1793. Under the authority of the Minister of the Interior, its first governors were the painters Hubert Robert, Fragonard, and Vincent, the sculptor Pajou, and the architect de Wailly. Admission was free, with artists given priority over the general public, who were admitted on weekends only. The works, mostly paintings from the collections of the French royal family and aristocrats who had fled abroad, were displayed in the Salon Carré and the Grande Galerie.

The Louvre Museum: Facts, Paintings & Tickets | LiveScience

The Louvre is the world’s largest museum and houses one of the most impressive art collections in history. The magnificent, baroque-style palace and museum — LeMusée du Louvre in French — sits along the banks of the Seine River in Paris. It is one of the city’s biggest tourist attractions.

History of the Louvre

The Louvre was originally built as a fortress in 1190, but was reconstructed in the 16th century to serve as a royal palace. It continued to be expanded over the years. It currently covers a total area of 652,300 square feet (60,600 square meters). In 1793, Louis XIV moved the royal residence to Versailles, and the Louvre became an art museum, exhibiting the royal collection and artifacts.

Without question, The Louvre’s most famous work is Leonardo da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa,” who enchants hordes of visitors with her enigmatic smile. This small, iconic painting — it is only 21 by 30 inches (53 by 77 centimeters) is covered with bullet-proof glass and flanked by guards; this is the result of it being stolen in 1911. (It was recovered in 1913.)

Crowds also flock to see the armless beauty of the “Venus de Milo,”

The Louvre pyramid

In 1983, the Louvre underwent a renovation plan known as the Grand Louvre. Part of the plan called for a new design for the main entrance. Architect I.M. Pei was awarded the project, and he designed an underground lobby and modern glass pyramid structure in the courtyard. Inaugurated in 1988, the pyramid would become a celebrated element of the landmark museum’s design. It appears strikingly modern and sophisticated against the baroque façade, and allows light into the lobby, which also housesgift shops and cafes. In 1993, the Inverted Pyramid, a skylight dipping into the underground lobby, was unveiled.
