Candida Höfer

Author(s): Marie-Laure  Bernadac, Henri  Loyrette

€ 39.80 tax included

Candida Höfer, known for her images of deserted spaces, photographed the empty rooms and galleries of the Louvre on days when it was closed to the public. Her oversized color prints promote reflection on the real presence of artworks and their connection with the past, as well as on the architectural setting, midway between palace and museum.
