The Pocket Louvre
Encyclopedic in its scope and exhausting in its magnitude, the Louvre has vast collections ranging from the 6th century B.C. to the mid-19th century. Its impressive architecture goes back 800 years, to its origins as a fortress guarding medieval Paris. In its contemporary incarnation, recently reconfigured and rebaptized "The Grand Louvre", it spreads over four levels and boasts more than 30,000 works of art; its galleries, shops, and offices occupy some 1.72 million square feet, with some 645,000 square feet dedicated to exhibitions.88% (7)

-- A handy user's guide, providing all the necessary information about access to the museum and to its many services, from cards to post office to shops.
-- Suggested itineraries for visits of varying lengths and for visitors with differing interests.
-- A history of the Louvre's long and colorful existence, with particular attention paid to the evolution of its architecture, so that modern-day visitors can orient themselves within the historical context.
-- A history of the collections, from the original royal treasure trove to Napoleon's museum for the people to its current position as one of the world's most important museums.
-- An illustrated catalog of 500 masterpieces, all in color, with brief commentaries that will lure visitors to find and enjoy these works within the museum.

Hampton Court - probably Britain's most important secular historic building complex - is a fascinating collection of buildings, gardens and parks spanning seven hundred years of history. A centre of court life and politics from the late 15th to the middle of the 18th century, a place of architectural innovation, the site of the most ambitious formal gardens ever built in Britain, Hampton Court is still, in many respects, a mystery both to the historian and to the interested visitor. This is a history of Hampton Court and of its gardens and parks, revealing the full complexity of its remarkable building history and illuminating the interplay of court life, politics and architecture. The history of the building is taken right up to the beginning of the 21st century. The 20th-century story of Hampton Court is one of conservation and of changing attitudes towards opening up the complex to the public. It covers everything from the agonizing discussions as to whether to build public lavatories to an account of the private enterprise that caused an octogenarian to make a personal fortune out of opening the maze to the public. It includes also the story of the terrible fire of 1986 and its aftermath. Social history and architectural history sit side by side in this account. New and important attributions are made to the architects Hugh May, Nicholas Hawksmoor, William Talman, Colen Campbell and Edward Blore, amongst others. Moreover, the palace and its setting are placed in their European context and their long-term architectural significance is gauged. The book is illustrated with original paintings, prints and drawings, and a specially commissioned suite of plans and reconstructions reveal the evolving form of the buildings.Similar posts:
