Synopsis

"Love in the Louvre" celebrates the many faces of love via works from the Louvre collection. This book presents the universal and multifaceted theme of love as depicted in art from many different cultures and eras. Such works abound in the Louvres diverse collection, ranging from classical examples such as Nicostratos sculpture "Couple on their Wedding Night" to more modern works such as "Fragonards The Lock". The selected works also present a variety of scenes ranging from the first seeds of romance to sensual and passionate intrigues. This beautiful volume is packed with works from many of the Louvres departments. Each painting or sculpture is shown in its entirety and in detail, focusing on the elements pertaining to the theme of love. Art lovers will see the works in a new way and the romantically-inclined will be equally enchanted.
