This new header is a painting by Alexandre Brun who painted this view of the West Wall with a door leading to the Grande Gallerie of Le Louvre. Le Salon Carré as the room is called was from 1848 to 1914 where the museum put all of its greatest masterpieces. The paintings are hung in the Academic School Style which was so fashionable then unlike today.

I love rooms like that in a Museum though you do not see that very often nowadays.
