After undergoing a major restoration, the sumptuous Apollo Gallery re-opened at the Louvre in 2004. Dedicated to the Sun King (Louis XVI), the gallery features lavishly painted ceilings and treasures including the French crown jewels. Much like the Gallery of Mirrors at the Chateau de Versailles, the Apollo Gallery took years to complete and is the work of over 20 artists, including Eugene Delacroix and Charles Le Brun.
