For so many centuries the seat of French power, the Louvre still
contains some national administrative offices in the rue de Rivoli
gallery, where a separate museum, the Mus閑 des Arts D閏oratifs, is
also housed. The gallery is an awkward 19th-century counterfeit of
the riverside arm (Galerie du Bord de l'Eau) built in the last half
of the 16th century. The Louvre, known formally as the Mus閑 du
Louvre, occupies the older gallery, the palace around the Cour
Carr閑, and, at the far end of the Tuileries Garden, the galleries
of the Orangerie and the Mus閑 du Jeu de Paume.
Among the treasures of the museum, one of the worlds greatest, are
the Victory of Samothrace, the Venus de Milo, and the Mona Lisa. The
enormous collections contain works from 7BC to the mid-19th century,
with a huge cultural and geographic spread. The Ecole du Louvre, in
addition to its regular university-level curricula, offers free
public evening classes in art history.
Crossing from the Louvre to the Institut, the Pont des Arts is one
of the most charming of all the Parisian bridges. It was the first
(1803) to be made of iron, and has always been reserved for
pedestrians: it provides an intimate view of riverside Paris and of
the Seine itself.
