This may be the longest blog ever.  But it's all beautiful painting/artifacts that I liked best from the Louvre.  The first few pictures are of the Salle des Caryatides, a room in the Louvre where the room itself was more interesting than the art in it, and amazing ceilings from various rooms all over the museum.  Then I put pictures of my favorite pieces.  Enjoy!
