Cour Lefuel (Louvre)

Posted on Updated on

Cour_Lefuel

Courtyard within the walls of the Denon Wing

Open to the elements (without a roof) and visible from windows looking out to the (inner) courtyard

Contains an interesting “Horse Ramp”
(which lead up to to the former Emperor’s Stables)

At the base of the ramp are four statues of mastiffs

Mastiff with puppies (Rouillard)

Of the six (6) internal courtyards (enclosed on all four sides within the Louvre, this is the only courtyard which is not covered.
(Perhaps this is a potential area for expansion, to cover and increase the area of display)
