Commissioned by French king François I in the 16th century, the Louvre is today one of the most visited monuments in the world. Within you can admire Egyptian, Western and Islamic artwork, Etruscan, Roman and Medieval works of painting and sculpture. The collections include truly legendary works such as Leonardo Da Vinci's Mona Lisa, Veronese's Wedding at Cana or the famed Venus de Milo. The Louvre has decorative arts sections where you can admire objects dating from the Middle Ages to the 19th century. You can see the famous statuette of B>Charlemagne or Charles le Chauve, a self portrait medallion by Jean Fouquet or furniture in the rococo style.The Louvre Museum possesses a department for the conservation of prints and drawings, which exhibits a selection of the works occasionally due to their fragile nature. For the past few years the Louvre has included a section dedicated to primitive art, an annex of the Quai Branly museum. There you can admire over 100 masterpieces of African, Asian, Australasian or American art.
