Children playing at the majestic palace the Louvre, which over the last thousand years has been developed into one of the most famous buildings in the world. Philip II had the first part built. Charles V enlarged it and the many generations of Louis made it the center of France. Pinheiro paints in this painting just one corner of the palace in an impressionistic manner. By depicting the children in the foreground, the artist makes the work 'small' and attracts you into the painting and keeps you looking.
