After an introduction describing the history and collections of the museum itself, this handsome volume draws on the Louvre's antiquities and European paintings to offer a visual history of ancient cultures and Western art. From the seated statue of Gudea (ancient Iraq, c.2125-2110 BCE) to Ingres' The Turkish Bath (1863), the discussion is centred around 69 masterpieces, including the Victory of Samothrace, the Mona Lisa and Vermeer's Astronomer, with reproductions of these and numerous related paintings.
