Catalogue des peintures italiennes du musée du Louvre
This is the French edition of the book about the Italian paintings belonging to the Louvre museum.
Jean Habert, Stéphane Loire, Cécile Scailliérez and Dominique Thiébaut, the curators in charge of the concerned collections elaborate this book, coordinated by Elisabeth Foucart-Walter, chief curator for the collection in the Painting department. The book presents the collection of Italian paintings of the Painting department of the Louvre museum, from the 13th century to the first half of the 19th century.
Each work of art is reproduced in black and white and is documented by a historical note and a complete bibliographical note along with numerous bibliographical references. Considerable appendixes add to the quality of this catalogue and therefore make it an essential reference book.
