Treasures of the Louvre by Musée du Louvre ( Book )
4 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Two hundred years ago, the doors of the Louvre opened to the public for the very first time. The palace of the French kings had been transformed into a museum that today stretches over an enormous architectural ensemble right in the heart of Paris." "The royal collections first assembled by Francis I in the sixteenth century were later transferred to the Louvre palace, and this prestigious core was further enriched with artistic treasures during the Revolutionary period. The collections have been growing ever since, and are today divided into seven departments. Oriental Antiquities, Egyptian Antiquities, and Greek, Etruscan, and Roman Antiquities illustrate the art and culture of the ancient Near and Middle East and the Mediterranean countries. The other four so-called "modern" departments -- painting, sculpture, decorative arts, and drawing -- span Western art from the height of the Middle Ages to the mid-nineteenth century." "With superb reproductions of nearly 400 of the museum's most renowned masterpieces, this glorious volume provides a grand tour of the Louver's unparalleled collection, and highlights the extraordinary range of artistic traditions that have gradually found their place in this museum. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET

Royal treasures from the Louvre : Louis XIV to Marie-Antoinette by Marc Bascou ( Book )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This breathtaking survey of French royal patronage features full-color illustrations of more than 100 objects, many so precious that they rarely leave the Louvre. French decorative arts reached their pinnacle in craftsmanship and design between the reign of Louis XIV and the Revolution, beginning with the sumptuous works of art made at the Gobelins manufactory, which was established to furnish the royal palaces, and continuing with luxury pieces made in specialist workshops across Paris through the end of the ancien régime. This book reveals the story of patronage and collecting among the French kings and queens with some of the greatest works from the collection of the Musée du Louvre, Paris, alongside illuminating essays describing the history and background of these beautiful royal objects. Drawing from the Louvre's extraordinary Département des Objets d'Art, Royal Treasures from the Louvre examines the full breadth of decorative arts in 17th- and 18th-century France, offering readers a generous view into the splendor of the French court."--Publisher's website
