Europe Vacation: The Louvre – Napoleonic Apartments
Since we had so little time at the Louvre I decided to visit the historic part of the Museum after my short visit in the Art Section to see the Mona Lisa. I was again struck by the amount of gold in the rooms as well as the astounding amount of red velvet. For these pages I tried to mimic that design with red background pages and bordering the pictures in red and gold. I used the fleur-de-lis embossing on gold paper to balance the design. I was not using a digital camera and many of my pictures turned out dark, which I only discovered when I had them developed. The gold borders around the dark photographs helps to lighten them to make the features more distinguishable.
