    Book details

Orignially built as a palace for the kings of France, the Louvre is Paris' -- if not the world's -- most breathtaking museum. A destination in itself, the Louvre has an extensive collection that offers something for every taste. See the ancient glories of Mesopotamia and the palace of Sargon II, king of Assyria: study the marble statues, and delicate ceramics of the Greco-Roman world: or walk through the galleries and study the paintings of Raphael, Leonardo, Van Dyck, El Greco, Gericault, Goya and other greats.

Let the Knopf Guide help you explore the Louvre's rich architectural history and unsurpassed collection (from Leonardo's Mona Lisa to a pyramid from the sands of Egypt) -- all explained in encyclopedic detail. Go behind-the-scenes to learn about the framing, restoration and documentation of the collection. Take in the surrounding sights, from the Tuileries Gardens to the Saint-Roche Cathedral, the Palais-Royal and the Bourse du Commerce. An informative and indispensable volume for art lovers of all tastes, this lavishly illustrated guide is a trusted companion for anybody visiting this unique part of Paris.
