Description

Interior view of the Apollo Gallery at the Louvre Museum. The gallery is an example of the French Baroque style, and acts a model for the Hall of Mirrors at the Palace of Versailles. Paintings with gilded frames decorate the barrel vaulted ceiling and the walls of the gallery. Ornate tables, which act as museum cases, line the center of the room.
