Richelieu Wing and Louis XIV

The Richelieu Wing on the north side of the Louvre, with equestrian statue of Louis XIV in the foreground. The original statue was sculpted of marble by Bernini (1673); this is a lead copy made in the 20th century. Most of the present palace dates from the 16th-century renovations of King Francois I and Henry IV.
