A chronological history of art that assembles chef d'oeuvres from all artistic disciplines around the globe and throughout the ages. This book-the first to be dedicated to the museum's collection-allows the reader to discover the universal spirit that permeates and incarnates the birth of this new museum. The growing collection, presented here for the first time, best captures and expresses the essence and spirit of the museum itself. These 300 works, reproduced in exceptional photographs commissioned for the publication, open a dialogue between the diverse world cultures and their artistic expressions. This work is a collaboration of the Tourism and Culture Authority, the Musee du Louvre, and Skira Flammarion.
