A cube-shaped book presented in a transparent box, Louvre is organized according to the museum’s eight departments, leading us on a stroll around the palace through various countries and centuries. Starting with a short text describing the history of the department, each chapter presents its most beautiful, most famous and most astonishing works carefully chosen by the curators of each department. The works benefit from a sober, clear and current presentation that also draws parallels, contrasts works and highlights details to make for fascinating reading.
