Immerse yourself in the wonder and dazzling display of 3,000 paintings in the permanent collection of the Louvre with this stunning slipcased edition of the New York Times bestselling book The Louvre: All the Paintings.

The Louvre is the most famous museum in the world. With 8.5 million visitors every year, the Louvre houses and displays many of the most celebrated and important paintings of all time.

Divided and organized into the four main painting collections of the museum--the Italian School, the Northern School, the Spanish School, and the French School--the book includes works by well-known masters like Giotto, Fra Angelico, Ghirlandaio, Botticelli, Leonardo, Raphael, Titian, Veronese, Caravaggio, Van Eyck, Breughel, Memling, Holbein, Van Dyck, Rembrandt, Vermeer, David, Delacroix, La Tour, Fragonard, Gericault, Ingres, Poussin, El Greco, Goya, Velasquez and many more. Four hundred of the most important paintings including the Mona Lisa and Liberty Leading the People, is given a deeper dive with commentary by art historians Anja Grebe and Vincent Pomarede.

Learn more about each artist and painting, and tour the realms of sensational masterpieces of the Louvre without ever having to leave the comfort of your home.
