Synopsis: LOUVRE, THE: ALL THE PAINTING (DVB)

An historic publishing event! Endorsed by the Louvre and for the very first time ever, every painting from the world's most popular and renowned museum is available in one stunning book. All 2,954 paintings on display in the permanent painting collection of the Louvre are presented in full colour in this striking slip-cased book. Comes with a, supportive DVD-ROM. This book is organized and divided into the four main painting collections of the Louvre: the Italian School, the Northern School, the Spanish School, and the French School. Artists and paintings are featured chronologically by the artist's date of birth. Four hundred of the most iconic and significant paintings are highlighted with 300-word discussions by art historians Anja Grebe and Vincent Pomarede on the key attributes of the work, what to look for when viewing the painting, the artist's inspirations and techniques, biographical information on the artist, the artist's impact on art history, and more. All 2,954 paintings are fully annotated with the name of the painting and artist, the date of the work, the birth and death dates of the artist, the medium that was used, the size of the painting, the Louvre catalogue number, and the room in the Louvre in which the painting is found. The design of the work enables the reader to carefully examine and enjoy the 400 featured paintings and browse through the remainder of the entire collection of 2,954 paintings, which appear six, nine, or twelve to a page. The DVD-ROM is easily browsable by artist, date, school, art historical genre, or by location in the Louvre. This last feature allows readers to tour the Louvre and its contents, room-by-room, as if they were actually walking through the building.

about author

Erich Lessing was born in Vienna on 13 July 1923, the son of a dentist and a concert pianist. In 1939, before finishing high school, Hitler's occupation of Austria forced him to emigrate to Israel (then still the British Mandate Palestine). His mother remained in Vienna and died in Auschwitz. Among several other jobs in Israel, Erich Lessing made a living raising carp and driving taxis.

Erich Lessing gave lectures on photography in Arles, at the Venice Biennale, in Ahmedabad in India as a UNIDO expert, at the Salzburg summer Academy and at the Academy of Applied Art in Vienna.
