A magnificent vehicle to see the Louve..
from Palmdale, California (Retired)
To be sure, this is one of the most complete and most gratifying books I have in my extensive library of world books. I only wish I could havepurchased a larger 24" x 36" version (Which is NOTavailable) but wish it was?
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Pictures are too small
from Show Low, AZ
I was at the Louvre last summer and did not see everything I wished to see. Having The Complete Paintings of the Louvre is wonderful. I feel as though I am there, again.
from North Stonington, CT
I'll never make it to Paris and the Louvre, in my lifetime, so I thought this would be the next best thing, and it is.!! It shows the paintings, tells all about the artist, when it was painted, about the time period and more. It will take me a long time to go through it, but it will be interesting and fun.

Beautifully arranged. My wife and I went to the Louvre some years ago and this is a wonderful trip down memory lane. The book is so good I haven't even had a chance to check out the complimentary compact disc with all the paintings.

Perfect Gift for the Artist
from Morgan Hill, California
This is a gift for my son, an artist. I'm most excited about the dvd, to travel through the museum and not have to fly to Paris!
