    Founded in the 17th century, the Ecole is one of Europe's greatest cultural institutions, and has had a profound impact on Western visual culture. It has also amassed an extraordinary collection of art, by its students and masters such as Leonardo, Raphael, Poussin and Rembrandt. In three essays and more than 200 catalogue entries, this book tells the story of both the school and those whose drawings, sculptures and paintings it holds, including leading French artists such as David, Fragonard and Ingres.
