The Louvre was constructed in a span of over three hundred years exemplifying traditional French architecture since the Renaissance. Most of the structures that make up the museum follow in the style of French Renaissance (actually copied from the Italian Renaissance and Baroque periods). From King Francis I to Henry IV and Louis XIII it was added onto and finished up under Napoleon III, with most all recognizing that Italy was the great school of both classical and Renaissance art. There are numerous sites you can go to to research this topic, and see correlations between the varrying influences from the Italian Renaissance and Baroque periods.
