As part of the Louvre pre opening the security around the upcoming inauguration was tight and I was only allowed to enter the galleries after the opening day. At this time it was packed with visitors. I met with Holland Cotter, The New York Times art critic who in 2009 was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Criticism in 2009.  Here is the link to my photographs and Holland’s words.
