    Photos are so small dvd photos are small and its slow to navigate I get that there are just too many paintings to thoroughly cover all the works but the photos are so small I would consider it of a book of thumbnails I had hoped that the dvd would give me access to better uality larger photos than the website but it does not If you're a fan of art check out the Museo del Prado's excellent online collection

    Some people have complained about the size of the paintings but there are plenty of large photos all in color and the smaller ones are still big enough to see clearly This is after all the entire collection of the Louvre which is a massive undertaking and I think they did a good job

    I've had the privilege of visiting the Louvre Unfortunately it's not possible to make a return right now This book and DVD is the next best thing It's a wonderful collaboration between the publisher and the Louvre Every painting that you would see in the museum is in the book It would take several days to see them all in person You get to take a guided tour on your own schedule I actually purchased this book for my nephew a budding artist I now need a copy for myself It makes an excellent gift for art lovers I HIGHLY recommend itThanks so much for taking the time to read this review I hope the information that I've provided makes your decision a little easier

    A collection of great art works unfortunately many are reproduced here in very small versions and even the accompanying CD has the same small pictures Maybe it's just me but I couldn't figure out how to enlarge them on my screen I bought this for my artist significant other just sits on the shelf in her studio

    A huge book with thousands of paintings You definitely get your bang for the buck The uality of the printings is mediocre good enough for flipping through but not enough for closer study For a general reader like myself the descriptions attached to the paintings are informative but somewhat on the cut and dry side I wish they were juicier although that is purely personal preference Very happy I've purchased the book

    What can we say about the Louvre; it contains some of the greatest works of art in human history Having had the great fortune of viewing uite a number of these paintings firsthand in the Louvre I was extremely pleased to see that ALL the paintings in this grand treasure trove were finally released The main reason being that I had seen works there that never seemed to appear in other art books and memories alone cannot restore the original in detail in the mind’s eye hence it cannot satiate one’s various reasons for being drawn to a particular work be it for its aesthetic charm psychological impact creativity color scheme composition etc One such work was “The Young Martyr” by Paul DelarocheHowever that example brings to light the main drawback of this ambitious volume The image is sadly minuscule as are the majority of artworks reproduced I cannot fault the publisher too harshly however for these reasons First the huge number of works that the Louvre contains cannot be presented in one volume any other way Second if they did make this a multi volume edition it would have been too expensive for many people Third making this single volume gives people who never had or will have the chance to visit the Louvre a complete representation of their art treasures all at a very reasonable price Fourth many art books aimed at the broad public have extremely poor color reproductions some being an absolute insult to the artist and the art world And while this edition does not boast the highest uality available it nevertheless is “good” especially considering the amount of works presented in this massive volumeBeing an artistauthor myself I find the ability to open this book in the comfort of a favorite chair or sofa a great relief sparing my eyes from the glare of a computer screen This again brings to light another issue; namely that of the accompanying DVD The images are likewise minuscule and not worth the effort or strainNevertheless the robust catalog that this edition boasts affords the professional or layman the ability to study lesser known artists and their works thus broadening one’s knowledge and clarifying one’s vision about the exchange of ideas from artist to artist or from one school to another and acuiring a better understanding of the chronological timeline of how tastes influences and priorities changeAs such despite its flaws for the price it is a great addition to my library and a book that anyone can pick up to gain pleasure from or be inspired by one of the small images within to research an artist further elsewhere But the wealth of artistic genius within this hefty tome is worth the sacrifices as such it is highly recommended for art lovers or art students interested in art history

    This book is a monster in size and weight but well worth the price if this sort of thing is your bag I visited the Louvre a month before purchase and will be much better informed about particular paintings the next time I go The photography is well done and the descriptions are informative

    Giving this only 1 star because of what we discovered upon receiving the replacement Unpacking it we knew immediately that it was used; obvious damage to the cover NO cover slipbox and no DVD included This is obviously a terrible oversight by and should never have happenedUPDATE Received replacement three days later; that product was delivered as new unopened complete I give it 5 stars

    My apologies for uoting from fellow art fans who have made at least three observations I myself haveUnfortunately I fall into the category of those who are never going to be able to leave this country Getting to the Louve would be impossible and it probably takes at least a week to sit and study the work you wish to study Although this wheelchair can be a bonus Secondly you have to take into consideration the week you have just spent finding the damn paintings you want to see I am not insinuating buying this book is better than going into the Louve but at the very very leastthis can be an invaluable guide The book will tell you the floor and also the room your painting are so buy it first before you set out to france and take notes on where it is you wish to go This book is probably one of the most beautiful things I have ever seenOne evening With the book on the desk I wanted a closer look at the detail of a piece of work I bent the lamp over onto the book The painting actually looked bloody wet as if it had just been finished Yes some of the art looked a little rough around the edges but so would you if you had been around since the 14th CenturyAs some people have noted on other very large books with hundreds of pages it would of been sensible to put a ' Marker Ribbon ' for those who don't want to put bookmarks in the bookSecondly someone made the comment that one of the Taschen books was worth at least £100 I believe that this is well worth that very priceNow the down side well a little downer The book comes with a CD ROMWell for many of us you would be better off using that as the damn bookmarkconsidering there are many of us who cannot get it to run all I can get is the introduction plus index I truly and foolishly believed in my ' fellow man' That those who did NOT have a problem making it work would tell us what computer they where using it's specifications and the model Plus any of you who At First could not get it to work and found a fixORWhoever made the disc could fix it because funnily enough the disc enclosed with the Vatican Taschen does not work on our computers eitherHowever this is NOT enough of a problem for me to only give it 4 starsYou can also get beautiful metal paper thin Bookmarks that will complement your book Alsofrom

    This is one of the most beautiful books I have ever bought The images are clear and well presented and the text is very interestingThe only complaint I have is that the CD ROM which comes with the book does not seem to be fully compatible with either Windows XP my main stand alone computer on which I do all my graphics work or Windows 10 my laptop which I use for the Internet The CD ROM opens on Windows XP and the index of artworks seem to cross refer satisfactorily However the images seem to have been designed for a screen with much lower resolution than my Eizo 24 is set up for When I try to enlarge them they drift off to the right hand side of the screen so only half the picture is visible On Windows 10 the index does not operate at all so there is no way of looking up the artists or their worksSo Book 5 stars DVD no stars but the book alone is than worth the money

    You can see my full review on the Foolish Fish YouTube channelThe book could have been perfect if not for crumpled pages at regular intervals where the reams of paper were clearly mishandled during printing I found a similar problem with the Florence book where some pages had black thumb prints all over them when I'd received the book still sealed in the original shrink wrapThe awkward painfully slow 1990's html image browser that doesn't allow you to re size the images just to zoom in on a detail in a tiny window that comes on a CD ROM attached to the inside cover of the book does not work with any modern browser and must be opened in Internet Explorer but the good thing is that the images can easily be retrieved to a local folder and browsed with a proper image browsing softwareThe scope of the book however is monumental and the commentary is exactly what you'd hope for from such a volumeAll in all a recommendation

    Were I to be the cast away on the proverbial desert island this book would be a fine choice for my one book other than the Bible and ShakespeareI adored working my way through it a task of uite some time The introductory chapters to each section are excellent and it was interesting to learn about how the Louvre collections were developed as well as what they contain Standards of illustration are high and the book contains very few proof reading errors and is sold in a solid slip case I now want to find out about certain artists whose work stood out for me for example George de la Tour Unfortunately as yet I haven't made the enclosed CD work


  13. says:

    A great book split into sections for each of the major art schools as is the Louvre itself Huge and richly illustrated I sat down with this immediately after receiving it and flipped through the entire book which took around an hour to complete If that isn’t enough there is also an entirely searchable catalogued dvd of the Louvre collection included All in all a wonderful addition to my collection of art books
