Paris 1960

This acrylic was rendered from a photo I shot in April in Paris in 1960.  The museums were empty except for a few guards.  At the top of the grand staircase leading into the Louvre sat the Winged Victory.  Not far away hung the Mona Lisa.  Neither art was protected from vandalism.  I don’t remember any entrance fee.  As far as crowds, there were none.
