Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel and the Louvre, around 1900 and today.
The arch was built in 1807-1809 at the behest of Napoleon to honor the Grande Armée. The courtyard of the Louvre, which is today dominated by the glass pyramid (built in the 80s under Mitterand) was then decorated by a statue of the statesman Leon Gambetta and a small garden.
