About this title


120 essays by a distinguished art historian represent a guided tour of more than eight hundred European masterpieces from the art collection of the world-famous Louvre

From Library Journal:

Though many cities boast impressive art collections, Paris's Louvre is the art museum, and this 1987 title gathers more than 800 of its most famous items spanning 500 years of European art. LJ's reviewer found Gowing's text slightly prejudiced (LJ 1/88), but the hundreds of illustrations are simply stunning. As its original incarnation sold for $85, even at $50 this is a good buy.
