Unprecedented and disarmingly attractive, this multimedia package contains images of every painting in the Louvre, the world’s most popular museum. All 3,022 paintings currently on permanent display in the pride of Paris appear in this handsomely designed, slipcased hardcover. The Louvre: All The Paintings thus presents all the four main painting collections of the museum: the Italian School, the Northern School, the Spanish School, and the French School, the paintings within each group presented chronologically by the artist’s date of birth. Four hundred of the most iconic paintings are singled out for detailed discussion. The attached DVDROM allows readers to browse by artist, date, school, historical genre, or by location in the museum. A masterpiece of its kind.
