Jeu de Paume has a history and a heroine we mustn't forget. During WWII, Rose Valland, a custodian of arts there, carefully documented art stolen from homes and museums by Nazis during 'the occupation' at great personal risk. Without Rose, we would've lost the treasures at not just The Louvre, but all of Europe. The Monuments Men would have been stymied without her knowledge. Sometimes we Americans forget we fought that war as allies.
There should still be a brass plaque near the entrance.
