Palais du Louvre

Author(s): Geneviève  Bresc-Bautier, Frédéric  Morvan

€ 0.00 tax included

The Louvre palace encompasses and showcases eight centuries of history. A fortress in the Middle Ages, royal residence during the Renaissance, turned museum in 1793, the ever-evolving Louvre has been enlarged by the greatest architects and embellished by the finest painters and sculptors. Its architecture and décor are masterpieces in themselves, and this publication, which could have been a mere guidebook, is a genuine book of art.
