VSW: IM Pei, Louvre, France

This was sketched quickly in waterproof inks.

A lot of controversy surrounded the Pyramid in front of the Louvre, by I.M.Pei.
I have some of those trepidations myself, but it has grown on me.
It was created to allow for a more gracious and less crowded
entry to the Louvre, and having waited to enter before the Pyramid was built,
I can see how this was a good idea.
Note; The link I gave you in Wikipedia compares this to
others created since, and I had to laugh when they
listed the hole in Portland.  NOT comparable.
