L'Album du Musée, Le Louvre


As a brief outline of the artwork you can expect to encounter at the Louvre, this works fairly well.

The chapters correspond to the subdivisions of the museum, and for each category, a number of significant artefacts are presented.

To finish, a compressed history of the building itself; one of my all time favourite museums! 

Rembrandt Van Rijn, The Philosopher in Meditation, 1632
Sublime in itself, and as a symbol for the human mind.
