NOTES: This drawing possibly represents a temporary structure put up to celebrate the birth of the Dauphin, the future Louis XIII, in 1601; or, perhaps, a more permanent part of Henri IV's constructions at the Louvre - for example, a 'triumphal arch' separating the Grand Galerie and the Petite Galerie.
