Additional information:

May Welland with her mother and Newland Archer are visiting Ms. Mingott to tell her about
engagement. In the corridor of Ms. Mingott house there are many paintings. One of them is ‘Gallery of the Louvre’.

David McCullough writes about Morse and his painting in his book ‘The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris’. In ‘Gallery of the Louvre’, Morse shows a large red-colored room, its walls hung with more than three dozen works of art. McCullough says the works themselves were all on view at the Louvre, but not in the same room and that Morse created the painting in order to show Europe’s great works of art to Americans.
